UDMR and PCM together in the name of autonomy?


UDMR chairman Kelemen Hunor announced yesterday at a press conference in Cluj-Napoca that the Union’s autonomy bill will be assessed by a mixed commission comprising of three representatives each of UDMR and the Hungarian Civic Party (PCM). The UDMR leader expressed his wish for discussions to be as brief as possible and the points of view of UDMR and PCM on the matter “to be in sync.”
“(…) We will appoint a joint commission next week to work on our autonomy bill, comprising of three of our people and three of theirs. (…) We have to succeed in keeping our points of view in sync. We are trying to finalize discussions as soon as possible,” Kelemen stated, as cited by Mediafax. UDMR’s autonomy bill is in no way connected with the current events in Ukraine, the chairman went on, adding that every time the Union has brought up the topics of autonomy and decentralization, “it was referring to a European model, not secession, as the case is with Ukaine and Crimea.” “Any comparison with Ukraine is erroneous and tendentious. As opposed to the situation in Urkaine, we are not seeking conflict as a solution,” the UDMR leader said further.
