Budapest, July 6 (MTI) – National Bank of Hungary rate-setter Andrea Bártfai-Mager has been appointed to replace Zsuzsa Németh as government commissioner for postal affairs and national financial services, according to a resolution published in the latest issue of the official gazette Magyar Közlöny.
János Lázár, who heads the Prime Minister’s Office, announced a week earlier that Németh was retiring.
The resolution mandates the commissioner to draft a long-term strategy for the sector along with proposals for the government by September 15.
Bártfai-Mager has resigned from her position as an external member of the central bank’s Monetary Council, the NBH said on Wednesday.
Her resignation reduces the number of external members to four. The Council is legally obliged to have more external members than internal members (four at present). The law also limits the number of Council members to nine overall.
