An analysis conducted by the Hungarian anti-corruption association KELLESZ suggests that the distribution of EU funding, in particular under cohesion policy, is politically motivated: decisions to (re-)allocate EU resources are unilaterally taken by the central government, in favour of pro-government cities and municipalities. This approach does not respect the requirement for transparency and non-discrimination in the allocation of EU funds in accordance with EU law (in particular the Financial Regulation and Common Provisions Regulation). It also jeopardises the effective and efficient use of EU resources and the requirement to allocate funding according to territorial and socioeconomic needs. The Commission has been informed of these findings.
