President Traian Basescu claims that until now he has not seen “any exaggeration, conditioning or blackmails from UDMR,” pointing out that the party had its own goal concerning the Education Law. “Currently I have seen no exaggeration, conditioning or blackmails from UDMR. At the same time it has to be understood that they, as a party, have certain goals and a partnership entails looking at their goals too,” Basescu stated for Mediafax.
However, the Head of State pointed out that these goals cannot include territorial autonomy on ethnic bases since such a goal cannot be accepted by any coalition. Traian Basescu made these statements after he was asked whether PDL is not losing its Transylvanian constituents because of its collaboration with UDMR.
