Summary/Abstract: The 2016 parliamentary elections saw the collaboration of the Hungarian parties: the Democratic Alliance of Hungarians in Romania (RMDSZ), the bigger party, which had been present in the Parliament before, and the Hungarian Civic Party (MPP) ran on a joint list. Hungarians make up 82.90% of the population in Harghita county and 71.59% in Covasna county. These proportions were also reflected in the ballots. Thanks to the willingness to vote of the counties with a Hungarian majority in Szeklerland, RMDSZ will be present with a faction stronger than during the previous term in the two chambers of legislation: the House of Representatives and the Senate.
