According to Mediafax, Szasz Jeno, the former president of the Magyar Civic party will go to Hungary to set up and head the National Strategy Institute, at Hungarian PM Viktor Orban’s proposal. The National Council of the PCM also Okayed on Saturday “a gradual strategy” on legislative elections, namely an alliance proposal of Magyar political forces, and, if the goal proves unattainable, at least with the Transylvanian Hungarian People’s Party (PPMT), to run on the PCM lists, or the PCM would candidate by themselves. The new PCM president, Biro Zsolt, said that, first and foremost, talks need to be started with the PPMT towards the forging of a pre-electoral alliance. He expressed hope that after the parliamentary election the Magyar community would have deputies to again put before Parliament the Szekler Land autonomy project.
