The European Parliament on Wednesday appointed Fidesz MEP Lívia Járóka to the post of one of the body’s vice presidents at a plenary session in Strasbourg.

Járóka has taken over the post from Ildikó Gáll Pelcz, a Fidesz MEP who has been appointed as vice president of the European Court of Auditors.

MEPs of the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats welcomed Járóka as being the first Roma to be appointed to the post.

They said in a statement that the appointment was a sign of appreciation for her earlier achievements, while also confirming Fidesz’s position within the EP.
