Based on the announcement of Marcel Ciolacu, chairman of the Romanian Social Democratic Party, his party will do everything in its power to get the Romanian Parliament to vote on the so-called Trianon law, which declares 4th June a national holiday in Romania.
As the Hungarian news portal Index reports, the law allows support for all scientific, cultural, educational and other events that promote the Trianon decision and the views of the Romanian majority in this regard. The Romanian media will also be required to report on the events.
The point of the legislation is to make the day of the Treaty of Trianon a national holiday, and on this day, it would be mandatory to display the Romanian flag in all public spaces.
One day earlier, President Klaus Iohannis had sent the legislation back for consideration. Social Democrat Titus Corlatean originally tabled the draft. They plan to vote for it again in the Parliament and then resend it to the president for promulgation.
If the Parliament approves the draft in its original version, President Iohannis will be forced to promulgate it. 
Previously, Iohannis challenged the law in the Constitutional Court; however, this can only be realised once. He argued against the Trianon Act by pointing out how it is criticised by a number of experts and NGOs, so he wanted a public debate on the issue. Accordingly, he asked the Parliament to start the legislative process again with the participation of historians, researchers, academics, educational institutions and NGOs.

  1. As it is posted in the picture above, The Hungarian Empire (part of the Austrian – Hungarian Empire) disappeared during the Fall of 1918. Its non -Hungarian parts (Banat, Burgenland, Croatia, Ruthenia, Slovakia, Transylvania etc) decided to live in other states than the Hungarian one. The majority of people living there decided to end the Hungarian power in the areas where they lived. For them, the Hungarian supremacy was enough. That is why the Hungary neighbour states (mostly Austria, Croatia, Romania, Serbia, Slovakia) agree that The Treaty of Trianon was AN ACT OF JUSTICE. An empire which had already been torn apart in 1918 was internationally considered dead by the provisions of Treaty of Trianon. Which was signed by Hungary itself. In spite of many claims, Hungary before Trianon was an empire, not a national state. There were about 3 million Romanians living there, about 2 million Germans, 2 million Slovakians, 2 million Croatians, more than 1 million Serbs, almost 1 million jews and others. Suprisingly for the claimers of the Hungarian National State, based on the Hungarian 1910 census, in Hungary were distinct ethnic areas for Hungarians, Romanians, Slovakians, Croatians and Ukrainians. The Hungarian ethnics were less than the non Hungarians ones. Those facts prove that Hungary of 1910 was not a national state, but an empire that disappeared when the formerly opressed people stood for their freedom and got it in 1918-1919. And the Treaty of Trianon just recognized their freedom previously obtained. ,
