PCM points the finger at UDMR

The president of the Hungarian Civic Party (PCM)-Covasna, Kulcsar Terza Jozsef, argues that the Democratic Union of Hungarians in Romania (UDMR) is behind the Bucharest Court’s denial of the petition for the registration of the Hungarian People’s Party of Transylvania (PPMA), thus “ignoring that political pluralism is a fundamental principle of democracy”. “I think that UDMR is behind the decision to prevent the founding of the Hungarian People’s Party of Transylvania”, the PCM leader stated, yesterday, in a press conference. According to Mediafax, the latter argued that political pluralism was a fundamental principle of democracy, which UDMR chose to ignore, by claiming there is no need for new parties on the political map of the Hungarian community in Transylvania. The deputy prime-minister Marko Bela criticized, recently, at the Summer Camp in Izvorul Muresului, Tokes Laszlo’s initiative to set up a new party of the Hungarians in Transylvania, “going against UDMR”, arguing that the endeavour was “reckless” and could lead to divisions in the unified policy of Transylvania.
