Roma agree to set up new political party

A group of Roma dissatisfied with the current status of their ethnic minority have agreed to set up a new political party called the Roma Coalition Party, the group's leader Gejza Adam said on Saturday, February 28. The 10,000 signatures required by law to register a political party are already being collected. Calling itself a preparatory committee, the group claims that all government proxies for Roma issues to date including the incumbent Anina Botošová have been inefficient in handling issues such as housing and education, the TASR newswire wrote. Adam also voiced concern at the number of Roma settlements, which instead of falling, has soared from 632 to 1,035 over the past two decades. TASR
