Romea.cz – Equal Opportunities Party calls on Romani members of Czech Govt commission to resign

The leadership of the Equal Opportunities Party (Strana rovných příležitostí – SRP) has called on the Romani members of the Czech Government Inter-ministerial Commission for Romani Community Affairs to resign from that advisory body. SRP Vice-Chair Čeněk Růžička said the Romani members of the commission are ignoring its 15 years of ineffectual projects and that the conditions for coexistence between the Romani minority and the rest of society are not improving.

“…after thoroughly considering all aspects of this situation and the long-term influence of the Commission on the lives of Romani people in the Czech Republic calls on you, members of the Romani section of the Commission, to resign from the Commission in protest,” the party leadership’s statement reads. “The Commission has become an impotent administrative institution, and its Romani section in particular merely serves as a necessary prop for government projects that do not effectively address the life of Romani people in the Czech Republic, as well as a necessary prop for the Government to show to international institutions.” The text was sent to the Romani representatives of Commission, the Czech Prime Minister, and the Czech Government Human Rights Commissioner.
