As a minister he represented negotiating, moderate politics, he opposed the extreme politics which wanted to separate from the Austrian Empire, so Klauzál did not support the complete independence. He stuck out for calling to account of Count Franz Philipp von Lamberg's killers. During the beginning of the fights, he pulled back to his possessions. He was a member of the Deák Party in the 1860s and became a member of the National Assembly in 1861 and 1865.

The Klauzál Square in Budapest is named after him.[1]
