From: Oana Maria Brâncoveanu - Public Relations and Communication Directorate


To: Mr. Balázs Izsák, President of the Szekler National Council

Mr. President,

With regards to your letter, registered as number 16/20.06.7014 we inform you that we reserve our position expressed in our letter from May.

With regards to your request to the Prime Minister to withdraw Romania’s application to intervene in case T-529/13, we would like to inform you that the application to intervene in this case, submitted to the General Court of the European Union is purely procedural, and it’s purpose is to prevent the extension of the competences of the EU through judicial means, to areas that fall under the sovereignty of the Member States, such as the protection of the rights of national minorities. We consider that the treaties do not provide the EU any competences in this area, as we made it clear also in our written motivation submitted to the General Court of the European Union on the 25th of June 2014. We greatly appreciate the institution of the European Citizens' Initiative, which is defined as a tool that can contribute to the strengthening of democracy in the European Union, and we encourage the use of this tool by the EU citizens. However, we cannot accept the use of this tool in order to expand the rights of the EU, as laid down by the treaties.


With respect,

Oana Maria Brâncoveanu
