Senate President: Government must take firm position on Szekely Land representative office opening in Brussels
Senate President Mircea Geoana (opposition Social Democratic Party) maintains that the Government should take a firmer position concerning the opening of a Szekely land representative office in Brussels, informs a press release remitted to Agerpres on Thursday (May 26th 2011).
According to Geoana, the initiative of two European Parliament members of the minor at rule Hungarian Democratic Union of Romania (UDMR), Csaba Sogor and Iuliu Winkler, and of independent MEP Laszlo Tokes represents „a worrying situation, exceeding the natural attitudes and normal approaches in a state of law.”
In Mircea Geoana’s opinion, the fact that representative offices of regions or micro-regions can be opened near European institutions, therefore the European Parliament implicitly, should not be mistaken with the possibility of opening a Szekely Land representative office in Brussels, which, the Senate President believes, would be „an illegal, anti-constitutional and anti-European act.”
He brings to mind that in article one, line one, Romania’s Constitution reads that Romania is a „national, sovereign and independent, united and indivisible” state.
