The Office of the Czech Government Council for Romani Minority Affairs is beginning the process of appointing new civil society members. The council is chaired by Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš and has a total of 31 members, 14 of whom represent the state administration and 17 of whom represent the civil society section.
