Czech Roma want Council on Roma Affairs dissolved

Radio Prague, News, February 11th

Representatives of the Czech Roma community are calling for the government's Council on Roma Affairs to be dissolved. According to the Chairman of the Roma Civic Initiative, Stefan Licartovsky, most Roma oppose the current system under which the council's members are chosen. He explained that although Roma organisations had chosen their council representatives, other, much younger candidates were appointed council members. Mr Licartovsky claimed that these members failed to promote the needs and represent the majority of the Roma community.
