Czech Government Council for Romani Minority Affairs accepting nominations for civil society members
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.
"Given that the four-terms of some representatives of the civil society section of the Council are expiring this year, the Office of the Council is beginning the public process of nominating members representing civil society to the Council. When appointing members to the Council, the principle of parity is applied, which means at least half of the members of the Council are Romani," Olga Jeřábková of the Human Rights Section at the Office of the Government of the Czech Republic told news server Romea.cz.
To nominate a candidate one must complete a form that is available online and send it together with two letters of recommendation, as well as with the signed consent of the candidate to allow his or her personal data to be processed, by 24 August 2018 to this address: Úřad vlády ČR, Oddělení kanceláře Rady vlády pro záležitosti romské menšiny a sekretariátu Rady vlády pro národnostní menšiny, nábřeží Edvarda Beneše 4, PSČ: 118 01 Praha 1 or send it electronically to the Czech Government's data box: trfaa33 .
