Livia Jaroka appointed EP vice president

The European Parliament on Wednesday appointed Fidesz MEP Livia Jaroka to the post of one of the body’s vice presidents at a plenary session in Strasbourg.

Jaroka has taken over the post from Ildiko Gall Pelcz, a Fidesz MEP who has been appointed as vice president of the European Court of Auditors.

MEPs of the ruling Fidesz-Christian Democrats welcomed Jaroka as being the first Roma to be appointed to the post. They said in a statement that the appointment was a sign of appreciation for her earlier achievements, while also confirming Fidesz’s position within the EP. Jaroka was MEP from 2004 to 2014.
