Index is first with the news that Fidesz has chosen Kinga Gál to replace Katatin Novák as the party’s fourth Vice-President at its General Assembly currently taking place, although the news portal cautions that voting has not yet taken place.

The Transylvanian-born Gál represents Hungary in the European Parliament, and will share the role with current Vice-Presidents Lajos Kósa, Gábor Kubatov, and Szilárd Németh as Vice-President, who were re-nominated for the positions in the party.

The party’s assembly also re-nominated Prime Minister Viktor Orbán as Fidesz President.
