Dr. Dávid Dorosz (born October 6, 1985) is a Hungarian jurist and politician, who has been the Deputy Mayor of Budapest for Climate and Development since November 2019. Dorosz was a member of the National Assembly (MP) from 2010 to 2014. He is member and former COO of the Dialogue for Hungary party.
Dorosz was born in Angyalföld, District XIII of Budapest. He graduated from Szilágyi Erzsébet Grammar School in 2004. After that he studied in the Faculty of Law at the Eötvös Loránd University where he graduated in 2009. Besides studying, he worked as a trainee for several years in a law firm. He edited cultural and external programs for an online radio between 2006 and 2008. He is one of the founders of the Humana, a youth journal for human rights.
He joined Politics Can Be Different in the Spring of 2009. He served as campaign manager of the party for a mayoral by-election of Józsefváros in the Autumn of 2009. He also functioned as campaign manager for the 2010 parliamentary election. Dorosz was elected to the National Assembly of Hungary from the party's Budapest Regional List. He was a member of the Committee on Foreign Affairs from May 14, 2010 to March 7, 2011. Currently, he holds a membership position in the Defence and Internal Security Committee and the Committee of National Cohesion. He ran for a seat in Angyalföld at the 2010 municipal elections. He served as board secretary of the party for a short time in 2011. He was appointed deputy leader of the LMP parliamentary group on November 26, 2012.
In January 2013, the LMP's congress rejected against the electoral cooperation with other opposition forces, including Together 2014. As a result members of LMP’s “Dialogue for Hungary” platform, including Dorosz, announced their decision to leave the opposition party and form a new organization. Benedek Jávor said he eight MPs leaving LMP would keep their parliamentary mandates. The leaving MPs established Dialogue for Hungary as a full-fledged party.
Dávid Dorosz ran as candidate of the Unity electoral alliance in Érd (Constituency I, Pest County) during the 2014 parliamentary election, but was defeated by incumbent MP András Aradszki (Fidesz). Dorosz lost his parliamentary mandate and started a business career after the election. He also lived in the United States for years. He returned to the Hungarian politics by the 2019 local elections, becoming, alongside Zoltán Gál J., one of the two campaign managers of fellow Dialogue politician Gergely Karácsony, who was elected Mayor of Budapest. Dorosz was elected Deputy Mayor of Budapest for Climate and Development on 5 November 2019.
