László Trócsányi, MEP of Hungary’s ruling Fidesz, has decided not to run for the post of vice chairman of the European Parliament’s constitutional affairs committee (AFCO), he said in a letter to AFCO Chairman Antonio Tajani.

A Monday statement by MEPs of Hungary’s ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrat alliance quoted Trócsányi as referring to his duties related to his status as Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s official nominee for Hungary’s European commissioner.

AFCO was scheduled to vote on Trócsányi’s position on Tuesday.

The European People’s Party, of which Fidesz is a member, will soon nominate another Fidesz MEP for the AFCO post, the statement said.
