Márton Gyöngyösi appreciates being in the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee as a non-attached member

In his recent Facebook post, Jobbik MEP Márton Gyöngyösi announced that he got a seat in the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee (AFET).

“This position is very important, partly because Jobbik is represented in one of the most prestigious committees, which reflects on the European place of our true national people’s party, and also because the Foreign Affairs Committee makes many decisions that may affect Hungary’s life on the Union’s eastern border,” Mr Gyöngyösi wrote in his FB post. The opposition politician has been actively involved in foreign affairs issues in his party and the Hungarian National Assembly as well. He served two terms as the deputy chairman of the Hungarian Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee from 2010 to 2018. For the brief period between 2018 and the latest EP elections, he was a committee member and a regular participant of the Council of Europe Parliamentary Assembly where he addressed several foreign affairs issues.

“It’s a great success for a new, non-attached MEP to become a member of the European Parliament’s Foreign Affairs Committee,” Jobbik’s representative said.

The committee also includes four Fidesz MEPs: László Trócsányi, Kinga Gál, Andor Deli and Andrea Bocskor.

Alfahír phoned Jobbik’s politician who expressed his opinion on Ursula von der Leyen’s nomination, too. As far as her personality is concerned, Mr Gyöngyösi does not consider her as a suitable candidate and he also called her whole nomination process scandalous.
