Budapest, October 7 (MTI) – The European Parliament’s culture and education committee’s denial to support Hungarian designate Tibor Navracsics for commissioner of culture, education, youth and EU citizenship is a warning for the government that its policies run contrary to European values, the opposition E-PM said on Tuesday.
In a statement, E-PM board member Nora Hajdu called on the government to “return to the European path” and nominate a “worthy and suitable” candidate for commissioner.
The statement also said that Navracsics’s rejection was “clearly a failure” and called on the ruling parties to stop making it appear as a victory.
Following a hearing on Monday, the European Commission said that the committee had voted support for Navracsics as a commissioner, but did not support that he should be given the culture, education, youth and EU citizenship portfolio.
