One Romani candidate elected to a regional parliament in Slovakia

Bratislava, 16.11.2009 7:13, (ROMEA/RPA)

Saturday’s regional elections in Slovakia resulted in victories for the left-wing government coalition led by the Směr-SD party of Slovak PM Robert Fico. The most successful Romani candidates ran in Prešov region for the Roma Coalition Party (Strana romské koalice - SRK). Only one made it into the regional parliament, Miroslav Daňo, with 2 491 votes from the district of Vranov nad Topľou, reports the Roma Press Agency (Romská tisková agentura RPA - www.rpa.sk).

Ladislav Čonka (SRK) lost by only a few votes, coming in two places behind the other candidates elected in Vranov with 2 273 votes. Štefan Kali (SRK) received 2 022 votes and Alfonz Kali (SRK) 1 988 votes. Daňa’s seat is the sole gain for SRK even though it ran a total of 57 candidates in Banskobystrický region, Košice region, and Prešov region.

The Roma Initiative of Slovakia (Romská iniciativa Slovenska - RIS) ran candidates for regional parliament as well as three candidates for regional administrator without success. In Košice, Jozef Červeňák ran for administrator on the RIS ticket and received 4.1 % of the vote (5 363 votes). The winning candidate, Zdenko Trebuľa, received 60.25 % of the turnout. Only 22.93 % of registered voters went to the polls there.

In Prešov, 26.31 % of registered voters went to the polls, where the RIS candidate Radoslav Ščuka won 3 223 votes, or 2.13 % of the vote. RIS also ran a candidate in Banskobystrický region, Emil Samko, who won 1.84 % of the vote with 2 499 votes. Voter turnout there was 27.06 %, RPA reports.

Commentary: A children's playground, common dialogue, and the media

In mid-September the Lidové noviny daily paper opened up an important topic by publishing a sketch of an everyday experience at a children's playground in the Czech Republic. What followed was a passionate discussion about whether the article itself was inciting racism or whether it was analyzing the causes of racism, whether a person should "speak up" in certain situations or leave them in tears.

Commentary: The Miss Roma competition does more harm than good

25.9.2016 18:29
On Saturday evening the "Miss Roma 2016" competition was held at the House of Culture in the Czech town of Hodonín for the 12th year in a row. I have always had mixed feelings about this contest, but I have never before publicly discussed what bothers me about it because it was always clear to me that it involves a significant emancipatory charge for some Romani community members.
