András Sütő

András Sütő (17 June 1927 – 30 September 2006) was an ethnic Hungarian writer and politician in Romania. Sütő was born in Cămărașu (Hungarian: Pusztakamarás), in Cluj County, Transylvania. He studied Stage Directing at the Szentgyörgyi István College of Dramatic Arts in Cluj. He quit college in order to become the editor-in-chief of the Falvak Népe weekly. He moved to Bucharest in 1951 because the editorial office was relocated there. Sütő could not identify himself with the political environment of the 1950s in the capital and returned to Transylvania in 1954. He lived and worked in Târgu Mureş (Hungarian: Marosvásárhely) until near the end of his life. Sütő was Member of the Great National Assembly, the parliament of Communist Romania, between 1965 and 1977. He also served as vice-president of the Writers' Association of Romania between 1974 and 1982.
In the late years of the Nicolae Ceauşescu regime, the works of András Sütő had been gradually banned from publication and presentation. Consequently, between 1980 and 1989 he could publish only in Hungary. During this period, he and his family were constantly harassed by the authorities and the Securitate. He had his eye gouged out during the 1990 ethnic clashes of Târgu Mureş, and had to undergo treatment in Hungary. Sixteen years later, he died in Budapest, where he was under medical supervision.
