Decision 26/2014 on the election of members of Budapest Council

Decision number: Decision 26/2014. (VII. 23.)
Subject of the case:

Election of members of Budapest Council

The lawmaker is allowed to create an election system whereby the voters directly elect one candidate for two positions if based on appropriate reasons. However, provisions that give extra compensation to losing candidates on the basis of a special quota related to the size of the population of each district is contrary to the equality of the right to vote.
