Political Career

Anikó took on her first public role and ran for office in Kispest. She won the municipal election and currently works for the same constituents who voted for her in 2019.[15]

In the year of 2020, Paróczai worked as a transparency advisor. In this role she uncovered a case of corruption in Kispest involving Krisztián Kránitz, Csaba Lackner, and Péter Gajda. Paróczai found and videotaped Kránitz's villa with a pool in Spain, which was not included in his declaration of assets. Subsequently, Paróczai was reported for defamation and misuse of special data. Kránitz was offered a new job by the municipality and received a bonus at the end of 2020 rather than being held accountable for his actions.

No progress has been made on the matter after the bonuses were granted[16]

In January of 2021, it was announced by Momentum Movement Prime Minister candidate András András Fekete-Győr, that Paróczai would resign from her position as councilor for transparency and equality.

At the press conference, she urged voters to choose fair, reliable candidates in the pre-election. In addition, Pároczai stated that as of 2022 it would be a crime to fill in the property declarations incorrectly and that, as a member of National Assembly (Hungary) she would speed up the renovation of the People's Park (Budapest) and Kőbánya-Kispest metro station.[16]
