Commenting on László Trócsányi’s appointment as the commissioner-designate for EU neighborhood and enlargement, Gergely Gulyás said Hungary is set to secure a key area of policymaking in the European Commission which will be of great significance to the European Union’s future.
Gulyás said the position is reflective of both the candidate and the country, and there was a pressing need to integrate the Balkans into the EU and accession talks should be started or accelerated with every country that meets the requirements.
The head of the Prime Minister's office said that in the EP hearings of the candidates, Trócsányi was likely to be attacked because the portfolio is closely linked to the controversial issue of migration. Such attacks against Trócsányi, he added, would be revenge for Hungary’s position on migration policy. “The portfolio is Hungary’s, and people should think twice before attacking Trócsányi because he is one of the most suitable candidates,” Gulyás said.
