The former mayor of Bódvarákó was sentenced to half a year in prison for a couch. Then, if not immediately, they were fired and new elections were issued. This fired mayor will also be restarted.

On Sunday, a mayoral election will take place in Bódvarok, Borsod-Abaúj-Zemplén province. The interim election was due to the fact that Árpád Farkas, the former mayor, was fired after discovering that he had stolen wood in 2016. 444 writes that the removed mayor is now being restarted for the post.

It was not simply the removal of the mayor of a village. The suspended prison sentence was only found after someone made a final decision about a plastic chair in the middle of the village. He had been suspended for six months now. Although it would have been necessary in such a situation to kick the mayor immediately due to misfortune, this only took a long time. Otherwise, there is no legal impediment to restarting a recovered mayor. So if the voters decide on Sunday, Farkas can again be a mayor.
