Prime Minister Viktor Orban and deputy PM Zsolt Semjen held talks with Jeno Szasz, head of Romania’s Hungarian Civic Party (MPP) with a focus on the political situation in Romania and opportunities for “Hungarian cooperation”, in Budapest on Monday.
Earlier in the day, Orban met leaders of RMDSZ and EMNP, Romania’s two other ethnic Hungarian parties, Bertalan Havasi, the prime minister’s press chief told MTI.
At the meeting with RMDSZ head Hunor Kelemen and Rozalia Biro, head of the party’s council of representatives, participants called it crucial that the ethnic Hungarian community represents as large a political force as possible during Romania’s general election in the autumn. Parties at the talks also discussed necessary steps in response to “worrying signs” in connection with Hungarian education in Romania.
During talks with EMNP heads Laszlo Tokes, Tibor T Toro and Szilard Demeter, the parties called it a shared Hungarian interest to preserve democratic values and the stability of the rule of law in Romania.
