President extends mandates at Hungarian Competition Authority
With the reappointment of Miklós Juhász as chairman of the Hungarian Competition Authority (GVH) by President János Áder, the authority has been granted its mandate for another six years, news agency MTI reported yesterday. The reappointment takes effect on November 2.
GVH Deputy President András Tóth, who like Juhász has held his position since 2010, also stays in his post for another six years, while remaining chairman of the Competition Council. The council, which acts as a separate forum inside the authority, makes the decisions of the GVH on the merits of each case and the decisions ordering enforcement, then – in case of a legal remedy – represents them before the court through a legal counsel, the official website of the GVH says.
László Bak, currently head of the authority’s legal office, has been named as the other GVH deputy president for the next six years, replacing Zoltán Horváth.
