After the First World War, a national assembly was held between the Romanians of Transylvania and Hungary. The national assembly consisted of 1,228 elected representatives of Romanians. All members unanimously voted to uphold democratic values and outlined the “fundamental principles for the foundation of a new Romanian State" during the assembly. Hence, a union between Transylvania, Bessarabia, Bukovina, and the Kingdom of Romania received favourable votes in the National Assembly of Alba Iulia in 1918.
