The leftist Democratic Coalition (DK) has called on outgoing ruling party mayors “not to destroy any documents” before they hand over their post.
Erzsébet Gy. Németh, DK’s incoming deputy to the municipal assembly of Budapest, noted that the results of the recent elections are being contested in the 1st, 4th, 8th and 9th districts.
The aim of those appeals is “to play for time” and suggested that before the posts are handed over “evidence could disappear”.
DK’s new mayors will therefore start their work by screening local governments taken over from the ruling parties, Gy. Németh said.
