In July, Fidesz’s Tamás Deutsch and Kinga Gál were elected vice-chairs of the budgetary control committee and the security and defence policy committee, respectively.
That same month, István Ujhelyi of the Socialist Party was elected to serve on the transport and tourism committee. Meanwhile, Gyula Winkler of Romania’s ethnic Hungarian RMDSZ party was elected vice-chair of the committee for international trade.
The votes were delayed in the cases of certain committees, including the constitutional affairs committee and the civil liberties committee.
Earlier, Fidesz’s László Trócsányi had resigned his candidacy for vice-chair of the constitutional affairs committee because of his nomination for the position of European commissioner.
