Gábor Kerpel-Fronius is the Deputy Mayor of Budapest.
He was born in Budapest in 1966. After graduating from high school in Budapest, Kerpel-Fronius studied History and French at the Janus Pannonius University in Pécs. He later founded his own IT firm where he worked as system analyst and project manager.
He joined the centrist-progressive Momentum Movement (which is the biggest opposition party in Budapest) in 2017 after the highly successul “NOlimpia” campaign, which forced the government to withdraw it’s previously submitted application for the 2024 Olympic Games due to corruption concerns. He was the party’s candidate for the mayoral elections of Budapest in 2019. The General Assembly of Budapest elected him as Deputy Mayor responsible for smartcity and participatory government that year.
