Marko Bela criticizes likely voting right in Hungary

Deputy Premier Marko Bela, of the Hungarian Democratic Union in Romania (UDMR), said he is against Magyar Romanians being given the right to vote in legislative elections in Hungary, adding that giving such right, in additions to dual citizenship, would be a “bad decision”. “Citizens would be duped into believing that voting in Hungary means they have fulfilled their duty as citizens, although the decisions reached there would bear a scant influence, if any, on their lives. (…) It would be a bad decision, if, besides dual citizenship, they will be given the right to vote in Hungary,” Marko said while at the Izvorul Muresului Youth and European Union summer camp  Saturday. The deputy premier also voiced his criticism at Laszlo Tokes and his initiatives aimed at setting up a new party of Transylvanian Magyars. Also, Marko expressed his willingness to gradually retire from politics and dedicate himself to his other vocation, literature.
