Hungary has nominated its foreign minister, Tibor Navracsics, for an EU commissioner post. Out of 21 nominations so far, only five are female, despite MEPs' demands for at least 10 women. Navracsics is set to face difficulties in the European Parliament in reaction to PM Orban's anti-democratic tendencies.
