Justice Minister Judit Varga could lead the ruling Fidesz party's list for the 2024 European Parliament election and will step down from her ministerial post, daily Magyar Nemzet wrote on Wednesday.
In the interview with the paper, the minister did not want to confirm the daily's information, because Fidesz's presidency also has to decide on the matter, however, it is certain that after the election she wants to represent the interests of the Hungarian people in the EP, and until then she will be actively involved in the campaign, and in order to do this, she will resign from her ministerial post.
Varga claimed there is a lot at stake in the 2024 EP elections, a conservative turn must be achieved in the European institutions, and she wants to play an active role in this.
Her goal is to build more alliances in the European relations system, she added.
"We see that a vibrant conservative movement is unfolding across Europe. This is what we need to build on. I have always said that it does not matter who belongs to which party family, the point is that the disproportionate left-liberal predominance in the Union must be overthrown," she said.
