AUR Leader Accuses PSD of Colluding with UDMR to Stifle Romanian Representation in Transylvanian Cities: At a rally in Târgu Mureş, George Simion, the President of the Alliance for the Union of Romanians (AUR), launched a scathing attack on Marcel Ciolacu, leader of the Social Democratic Party (PSD), accusing him of striking a clandestine deal with the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Romania (UDMR). According to Simion, this agreement aimed to prevent Romanian parties from fielding common candidates in major Transylvanian cities. Simion labeled Ciolacu as a "small guy" motivated by vested interests, alleging that the pact prioritized political and real estate interests over genuine representation. The accusations underscore growing tensions in Romanian politics ahead of local elections, with AUR positioning itself as a staunch advocate for Romanian unity and representation against perceived ethnic-based political maneuvers.
