On Tuesday, Democratic Union of Hungarians in Romania (UDMR) President Kelemen Hunor filed his bid for a new four-year term at the helm of the Union. The party congress will take place in Cluj-Napoca, on February 22-23, with more than one thousand persons expected to attend.
According to a UDMR communique issued on Tuesday evening, Kelemen Hunor emphasised that the experience he has gained in the eight years he has spent at the helm of UDMR gives him the chance of confidently living up to a new term in office.
“My goal is not the office this time around either, my role is to build a balanced and strong Union. (…) It is inevitable that, in Transylvania, finding a partner of dialogue would materialise without accepting a compromise. This is and will remain an inevitable condition of minority politics, of consolidating the community. One hundred years have passed in Romania, and on a historical scale the objective is for a strong, competitive and successful Hungarian community to exist in this country in the next one hundred years, a community that could keep its identity and native land. It is our responsibility to create a vision for the future. This is the most important task of the party conference in February,” Kelemen Hunor stated.
UDMR’s party congress will take place in Cluj-Napoca on February 22-23, with more than one thousand persons – party delegates and guests from the country and from abroad – being expected to attend.
