At the meeting, personal positions were also on the agenda, during which a new House Speaker and Committee Chairs were elected by the General Assembly. As a result, Attila Mesterházy was elected leader of the left-wing representative group of NATO member states and chaire of the Transatlantic Defense and Security Co-operation Subcommittee.
Since our NATO accession, this was the first time that a Hungarian representative was elected faction leader of a party family.
On Monday, the General Assembly adopted the report of the Socialist Representative as rapporteur on the defense expenditures of NATO member states entitled "Sharing Burdens: New Obligations in a New Era."
