Parliament’s legislative committee chaired by Fidesz MP Gergely Gulyás rejected a draft bill today submitted by Fidesz MP and Minister for National Economy Mihály Varga  that would have transferred responsibility for appointing the head of the National Tax and Customs Administration (NAV) to that ministry from the Prime Minister.

One can only speculate why Minister Varga would have submitted such a bill without first clearing it with fellow Fidesz MP Gulyás or their mutual boss, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán.   The head of NAV reports directly to the Minister for National Economy, so it stands to reason that he should appoint the person sitting in that chair.
