After the Second Vienna Award which turn Northern Transylvania under Hungarian control in 30 August 1940, Bánffy became deputy in the Hungarian Parliament and joined the newly created Transylvanian Party. In the followings, as Minister in the Hungarian Government, he maintained the interests of the Transylvanian Party on the field of economy and agriculture. Dániel Bánffy shortly became one of those Hungarian politicians of the period who did the most for the economic development of Northern Transylvania. Unfortunately, the times of war during his mandate as Minister of Agriculture doesn’t permitted him to realize his purpose. In this way only a part of his great program of development should came to fruition.

In the first years of Communist Regime in Hungary he was also persecuted, being in force residence together with his family. Dániel Bánffy died in 1955.
