One of the key conditions to convince UDM to join the governing coalition was accepting the Minorities Law. UDMR leader Marko Bela says the negotiations with PD-L have been "infernal". The declaration was made in Targul Mures (Central-North), before the Union Representative Council participants, according to NewsIn.

"We have elaborated an agreement that contains all our requests, including the minorities' law or the education law. Besides, we are also thinking of decentralisation, re-planning the economic regions (instead of eight, there should be 15 - 16) and resolving the issues of Hungarian experts from allocated regions. We should not forget about financing superior studies in the Hungarian language. But, as you know, the devil is in the details, so we'll see how it goes. But i don't consider insignificant the fact that UDMR was given the Culture Ministry. At a low scale, I would say it resembles the Klaus Johannis project, because 10 years ago it would have been impossible to have a state secretary at the Culture Ministry or Education, and now we've got The Culture Ministry, Environment Ministry, the Health Ministry and a vice-PM position. The PD-L debates have been infernal, with many conflicts", Marko Bela said.

"PNL is still the party closest to us. We tried to work with PNL, but they've got other options, the see themselves rather in opposition, but we agreed to try and have a close relationship and we will not allow for bad relations", the UDMR leader added.

Marko Bela could be vice-PM in the future Cabinet, while Kelemen Hunor is likely to have the Culture portfolio, Cseke Atilla - the Health Ministry and Laszlo Borbely - the Environment. UDMR would have preferred the Regional Development Ministry, but they were announced the portfolio will go to Elena Udrea, the ministry having to include the tourism department as well.

The UDMR Council met on Friday to validate UDMR's joining the governance.
