Unconfirmed: Hungary to propose diplomat Olivér Várhelyi as new Commissioner

BRUSSELS – According to Reuters, Hungary is to propose diplomat Olivér Várhelyi as its commissioner for next five years after the European Parliament blocked the first candidate chosen by Prime Minister Viktor Orban, an EU official said. Varhelyi would replace Hungary’s former justice minister Laszlo Trocsanyi who was rejected earlier on Monday by the legal affairs committee of the EU parliament because of conflicts of interest.
