Based on some comments by the current opposition (USL) in Romania, tomorrow will "come the end" and a new country will be born overnight or at least some "worrisome situation" will be created as stated by Mircea Geoana. There will be nothing like this, however, those three members of the European Parliament they sent some invitations to the opening of "Representation of Szeklerland in Brussels".
Indeed, there is no such entity like Szeklerland as administrative-territorial unit recognized by law or constitution in Romania. Similarly there is no such legal entity as "Tara Motilor", "Tara Barsei" etc, however, everybody from Romania knows what those regions are.
However, as one of the organizer is the well-known Bishop Laszlo Tokes, of course one might think there is something also related to territorial autonomy asked often by Laszlo Tokes and his followers belonging to the radical representatives of the hungarians from Romania. Personally, I also think such [hidden] aspect could be retrieved in this initiative of those three EU representatives, but in order to avoid any legal act against this initiative, I would suggest the following lawful "equation":
Hargita county + Mures county + Covasna county = Szeklerland
So they can create the representation on these counties defined by law and nobody can argue anymore. Problem solved. I suggest than other micro-regions should also create such initiatives and hopefully some guys from Europe will hear about these regions and if there is no industrial growth at least some tourists will visit our country. (Please do not ask for highways because we do not have ....but I can assure you, we are really nice people!)
Ps. It might happen that some from Romania never heard about Szeklerland, but honestly I always knew that Szeklerland consist of Hargita, Mures and Covasna counties. No comment.
