In the debate over the proposal, Socialist deputy Csaba Horváth called it “strange” that the deficiencies had not been detected earlier, adding that the designs had not been made with due professional care.

Budapest Mayor István Tarlós said the assembly sought to “provide maximum funding so as not to pass further decisions again and again” and added that “the larger part of the [HUF 1 bn] sum would be saved”.
Meanwhile civil activists held up signs in the assembly hall demanding that local residents should be consulted over the contested project.
