Hungary's Justice Minister ranked one of the "power women" of 2020

Elsevier Weekblad has included Hungary's Justice Minister Judit Varga on its list of the 20 "power women" of 2020.

Dutch political weekly Elsevier Weekblad has included Hungary's Justice Minister Judit Varga on its list of the 20 "power women" of 2020. She has been ranked fifth on the list.

“The popular Dutch weekly, Elsevier Weekblad ranks me among the 20 influential female politicians in good company of Belgian, New Zealander and Finnish prime ministers and the Slovakian president. I am labelled as a charm cannon of PM Viktor Orbán and a lovely ex-lawyer tasked with convincing the world: Hungary indeed is a state with a sound rule of law. The stakes are high enough...Will do my best,” Minister Varga wrote on her Facebook page.

Varga was appointed Hungary’s justice minister last July. She holds a degree in law and was previously an advisor for Hungarian MEPs and a state minister in charge of EU affairs from 2018 until her ministerial appointment.
