Latifa Shikovska is from Suto Orizari, a graduate professor of physical culture, and director of the NGO "Umbrella". She was on the candidate list of SDSM and the coalition "We can" in EU 2 where the leader was Oliver Spasovski.
Before being part of the Executive Board of SDSM decades ago, Latifa was a well-known Roma activist who fought in every way for the realization of basic human rights and protection of children.
She often says: "I do not sit in the office, the office serves me only as a technical service where I prepare, otherwise in principle all these years I work in the field, because I think you see the real situation in the field in terms of the situation that concerns the Roma and based on their needs and problems we create projects ”.
She notes that one of the most pressing problems in the Roma community is the lack of personal documentation.
Now that she is expected to sit in parliament, her chance is to animate that problem and channel it through the legislature.
"It is really important for us, it is high time to find systemic solutions, those systemic solutions must be with concrete measures and activities, action plans, strategies, and special programs, first of all development, so that the Roma can find their own place in this society, because we also contribute to the prosperity and progress of our country, because I also participate through certain taxes to the state and I need to know where my money is spent. "Like every citizen in our country," said Shikovska.
The first Roma woman MP in the Macedonian Parliament is also guided by a well-known thought of Charles Bukowski who says: "You will save the world only if you help people one by one. "Everything else is romanticism and politics."
