Demszky Resigns MEP Post

Budapest Mayor Gabor Demszky said yesterday that he would resign from his post as a Member of the European Parliament.

The move follows a heated dispute in the municipal council over whether the mayor could legally hold both posts and the opposition demands that he resign as mayor.

On Wednesday, the head of the Municipal Administrative Bureau, the legal arm of the city, stated that the bureau considered the two posts incompatible.

Demszky has been mayor of Budapest since 1990.
