The Unified Roma (ZRPS) political parties from the Trebišov district (Košice region) are preparing a letter to Prime Minister Robert Fico in which they ask for a meeting, Mikuláš Horváth, chairman of the political association, announced in Košice on October 1.

The parties want to tell Fico about the social situation of Roma in the Zemplín area and to propose solutions.

"Unemployment is the biggest problem. We will submit a proposal and have faith that the prime minister will understand us. We want to be helpful, and our solutions may relieve the Labour, Social Affairs and the Family Ministry of a burden," Horváth said.

The ZRPS wants to submit a project involving a non-profit company in Zemplín worth Sk100 million (€3.31 million) that would create hundreds of jobs for unemployed Roma. Horvath points out that the government has given non-governmental organisations in other regions several times more in subsidies.

If Fico and the association fail to reach an understanding, Horváth said he hasn’t ruled out protests and demonstrations. TASR
