LÁZÁR: 'HIGHLY IMPORTANT' RMDSZ PERFORMS WELL IN ROMANIA ELECTIONS

 

A Hungarian government official on Friday stressed the “great importance” of the ethnic Hungarian RMDSZ party performing well in this year’s European Parliament, local government and general elections, and resuming its place in the Romanian government. The Hungarian government would not interfere with “how Transylvania Hungarians define their own future” but it offered its help, János Lázár, the construction and transport minister, told maszol.ro in a video interview. “Hungarians must grasp that we can’t vote in their place… Everyone must go and vote if they want to protect their national interests,” Lázár said.
