UDMR’s demands regarding UMF Targu-Mures close to being granted?

UDMR Minister Borbely said yesterday, at the parliament, that ‘everyone in the ruling coalition agreed’ that the situation regarding the University of Medicine and Pharmacy of Targu Mures needed to be resolved by adopting a government decision and noted that the form the decision was going to take was under debate. ‘Everyone in the coalition agrees that the UMF representatives are currently in a situation of illegality, because they are not applying the law which clearly provides that Hungarian languages lines are to be set up within multicultural universities,’ the UDMR leader explained, quoted by Realitatea.net. He added that a decision would be made most probably on Monday. Borbely made the statement after UDMR leaders Kelemen Hunor, Laszlo Borbely and Marko Bela had repeatedly threatened to defect from the government if a Hungarian language chair was not set up at UMF Targu-Mures.  Nonetheless, reactions in PDL are not in consonance with UDMR. Realitatea quotes party sources as saying exactly the opposite of what Borbely maintains, more specifically that they have had enough of UDMR’s blackmail and that they are determined not to give in this time. ‘At key-moments, they threaten to leave the government if we don’t grant a new claim. This time I don’t think we will accept it. (…) PM Ungureanu told them that the government can operate as a minority government just as well, in other words he is not accepting UDMR’s ultimatum either,’ said the quoted sources.According to Mediafax, yesterday, PDL MP Cezar Preda actually accused UNPR and UDMR of ‘double-mindedness and unfriendly conduct’ and of trying to ‘eat the ginger and obtain electoral advantages.’ He even demanded an intervention by the PDL president.
