Hungary's deputy PM to be nominated EU commissioner
Tibor Navracsics, deputy PM of Hungary, said he could be nominated as a commissioner in the new EU executive by Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.
Navracsics, who is currently also the minister of justice, added that he could be the foreign minister in the new governance of Orbán before going to Brussels. He also talked about his fortunate political situation of having been mandated as an MP in last month’s parliamentary election.
Talking to Heti Válasz, he said that “it would be especially fortunate if I were to be nominated as EU commissioner in the autumn." Navracsics said his nomination might be involved in the agenda, but did not say which Commission post Hungary has aimed to acquire in the 28-member-block.
Hungary’s re-elected prime minister, Orbán is expected to form the new government next month.
