Belly dancer causes fury in Esztergom town hall

The mayor of Esztergom, Éva Tétényi (Independent) thought she would surprise her male co-workers with a little treat, a female bellydancer to perform in the town hall, RTL Klub reports.

The local section of the FIDESZ party reacted immediately to the news about this saying that a town with billions of HUF in debt does not have room for such events.  Mayor Éva Tétényi replied that the belly dancer gave her performance for free, in exchange for some chocolate. The champagne was also bought in by the spectators, so no tax money was spent on the event, she also highlighted that under the previous local government over 23 million HUF was spent each year on events like this.
