International Women Democrat Union Elects Novák Board Member

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.12.09.

Katalin Novák, Hungary’s state secretary for youth and family affairs, has been elected member of the Executive Board of the International Women Democrat Union (IWDU) in Washington, DC.

She attended a two-day semi-annual conference of the International Democrat Union (IDU), a world federation of centrist and centre-right political parties established in 1983. The IWDU is its women’s wing.

Addressing the IDU conference, Novák gave an outline of the Hungarian government’s family support policy and its measures.

She was elected to the IWDU leadership post in a vote on Friday.

“This is also the success of Hungary’s ruling Fidesz, a highly valued member of IWDU,” Novák told MTI. “Its opinion is held in high regard.”

Megtisztelő, hogy a Nemzetközi Demokrata Unió női tagozata alelnökének választottak Washingtonban. Ebben a pozícióban is azért fogok dolgozni, hogy a nőknek ne kelljen választaniuk hivatás és család között.
