PMO Head: Commissioner-nominee Várhelyi’s Professional Qualifications Unimpeachable

MTI-Hungary Today 2019.11.14.

On the topic of the hearing of EU commissioner-nominee Olivér Várhelyi, the head of the Prime Minister’s Office, Gergely Gulyás, told a regular government press briefing on Thursday said that hopefully the European Parliament would do its job in assessing the professional competence of the candidates.

“Várhelyi’s professional qualifications are unimpeachable”, he said.

Who is Olivér Várhelyi, Orbán’s Newly Nominated Commissioner?

Commenting on Várhelyi’s remark at the hearing that he would carry out his duties independently of the Hungarian government, Gulyás said a commissioner would be breaking the rules by doing otherwise, so Várhelyi’s standpoint was welcome.
