Chairman of the Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania (UDMR) Kelemen Hunor on Wednesday told radio station RFI that in the event that a new majority were put together “there would be no problem if the current government took a break after more than four years at rule.”
Asked if UDMR would back a no confidence motion lodged this fall, Kelemen Hunor said the subject hasn’t yet been discussed with the Liberals.
“We didn’t discuss this move with the Liberals, nor did we see the subject of the motion. For the time being we and the Liberals don’t build a majority. (…) We should discuss the subject to see if a majority can be put together, but I think there would be no problem if the Government took a break after more than four years at rule,” Kelemen Hunor said.
He explained however that the toppling of the government depends neither on the Liberals, nor on UDMR, but strictly on parliamentary math.
“It doesn’t depend on us or the Liberals, because the most important arguments here are given by math, figures, cold arithmetic. If the Government further has the Parliament’s support, then we can move a no-confidence motion, it’s a democratic exercise, a constitutional tool, but this doesn’t automatically mean that the Government will be sent home,” Kelemen Hunor added.
