Gajdos hopes that his resignation will help to forge an alliance among the UMDSZ, the other Transcarpathian Hungarian organization, the Hungarian Cultural Association (KMKSZ) and the Hungarian government as well as promotes the unity of the Transcarpathian Hungarian community announced the statement released by the UMDSZ presidency.
Gajdos announced his resignation at the UMDSZ weekend's Beregszász meeting. The politician explained that he has led the organization for 12 years and with his resignation a period in the life of the party has come to an end. Gajdos reasoned that his decision motivated by wish for unity among Hungarians and he didn't want to be accused of being an obstacle in the way of uniting the Hungarian community in Ukraine reads the statement.
The unity of Hungarians in Ukraine's present situation has paramount importance, since the division of the populace weakens the community's ability to represent its interests and diminishes its bargaining position in the Ukrainian political arena writes the politician.
