Biography

Elvira Kovacs was born on 18 July 1982 in Zrenjanin, where she finished high school. She studied at the Faculty of Economics in Subotica, where she was also the student vice-dean, and studied for one semester at the Wirtschaftsuniversitaet in Vienna. She graduated in 2006. From then until July 2007, she worked in the Executive Council of Vojvodina, in the Provincial Secretariat for Healthcare and Social Policy.

Her career in the political life of Serbia began in 2000. She became a member of the Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians (SVM). Since 2006, she has been a member of the presidency of the Youth Forum of this, the strongest Hungarian minority party.

In 2005, she joined the team of regional coaches of the National Democratic Institute.

Since mid-2007, she has been an MP in the National Assembly of the Republic of Serbia and in the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe. For several parliamentary legislatures, she has been a member of the Committee on Human and Minority Rights and Gender Equality, as well as the Committee on the Rights of the Child and the Stabilization and Association Parliamentary Committee. In the last legislature, she was the Deputy Chairperson of the European Integration Committee, deputy head of the Alliance of Vojvodina Hungarians Parliamentary Group.
