Government official: Europe moving towards peace, development at stake in election

What's at stake in the European Parliament elections is whether Europe will move towards peace and development, an official of the foreign ministry said on Friday.

Levente Magyar told a press conference in Cluj-Napoca (Kolozsvar) in Romania that change was needed because European leaders could be doing more to bring the war in Europe to an end, but this was currently not happening.

Brussels, he said, had been hindering economic development, so the EU needed “pro-business leaders”.

He expressed hope that in the elections this year Transylvanian Hungarians would strengthen their political positions in local governments, in Bucharest and in Brussels, saying that this would also strengthen the alliance between Hungary and ethnic Hungarians in Transylvania.
