UDMR President Kelemen Hunor rules out the Union joining the Government, claiming that this topic is inexistent and that no such request has been made by UDMR or by the PSD-ALDE ruling coalition.
On Monday, asked by the MEDIAFAX correspondent to what extent is the UDMR interested in joining the Government, Kelemen Hunor answered negatively, stating that this is out of the question.
“No, it’s out of the question. There is no such request, there is no such proposal, not on our part, nor on the part of the PSD-ALDE coalition, things haven’t changed. It’s out of the question, there is no intent, there is no request, this topic does not exist for us. In the following days we will meet Premier-designate Viorica Dancila and we will take a decision regarding the confirmation vote, probably on January 29, at the meeting of UDMR’s joint parliamentary groups, but this is entirely different. But we’re not talking about governing, this topic does not exist,” Kelemen said.
PNL President Ludovic Orban stated last Wednesday that it is important for UDMR not to vote for the new Cabinet.
“If UDMR does not vote it means this Government won’t be confirmed. If UDMR nevertheless decides to support Dancila, the confirmation of the Government will be very hard to prevent. But in what concerns us, we will talk with all actors, with all MPs, individually, so as to try to prevent the Dancila Government’s confirmation in Parliament,” Orban stated.
