Roma representatives meet with Prime Minister

11-06-2012

Representatives of the Roma minority met with Prime Minister Petr Nečas on Monday to discuss ways to improve ethnic relations. The leaders of the Nationwide Association of Roma, which was created late last year, hope to find more effective solutions to the community’s problems, which many say are worsening in spite of investments. The association requested of Mr Nečas that the government establish a Roma representative to the cabinet that would not be a minister but not be without authority. The Prime Minister told a press conference afterwards that the idea was woth considering.
