The opposition Párbeszéd party is calling on the government to launch extensive consultations on housing policy.

Party lawmaker Olivio Kocsis-Cake noted at a press conference on Tuesday that central bank governor György Matolcsy had proposed setting up an organisation to create a sustainable housing market. In the article published on financial news website novekedes.hu on Monday, Matolcsy called for a new housing policy strategy based on public consensus.

Property prices in Hungary have grown by 104 percent since 2014 and by 184 percent in Budapest, Kocsis-Cake noted.

Párbeszéd is proposing establishing a parliamentary committee to draft a housing policy concept spanning several terms, he said, underlining Párbeszéd’s standpoint that the right to accommodation should be incorporated into the fundamental law.

The second-longest average length was registered in the Czech Republic (9.6 days), followed by France (9.1 days). 

The shortest average length, 4.5 days was registered in the Netherlands, followed by 5.3 days in Bulgaria, and 5.5 days (2016 data) in Denmark.

Eurostat says that although there were more female patients than male patients, the average length of stay for male patients was generally longer in most member states.
