On Saturday, Karácsony wrote on Facebook that Budapest had expressed its willingness to work with the central government in a letter to Tibor Navracsics, the minister responsible for regional development and utilization of EU funds.

“That’s great news because Hungary has the last chance to access EU funds in the EU,” he said.

“In this situation, it will be urgent and important for Budapest and the government to act together,” he added.

Karácsony also suggested that Navracsics should harness the power of Budapest’s network and lobbying in consultation with the EC.

He said Navracsics had already responded to his letter and wrote that a meeting with the mayor could take place “in the second half of July.”

Karácsony visited Brussels last Thursday to meet with Vice-Chairman of the Bella Youlova Commission, Didier Reynders, Judiciary Commissioner, and Johannes Hahn, Budget and Administration Commissioner of the European Commission. The mayor said on his Facebook page that he had met with members of the Commission to discuss possible EU funding in Budapest.
