Development Minister Miklós Seszták says Gyárfás’s experience and foreign contacts are needed. Gyárfás has headed the Hungarian Swimming Federation since 1993 but was obliged to leave in December after Hungary’s most successful swimmer Katinka Hosszú and several other swimmers turned against him.
He remains acting head of the federation until the general meeting meets in January to elect a new president.
