The registration and registration of electronic voters and candidates for the IRU Congress 2020 has begun

The IRU Parliament has set out a time-table for the completion of preparations for holding
of the first electronic elections, taking place in connection with the XI World Roma Congress.
In accordance with that schedule, the program commenced officially on 15 September.

This means that new voters should, without delay, notify their intention to participate in
elections by sending an email now to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Individuals wishing to enter themselves as candidates for functioning positions in the IRU need likewise to send details to this email address. They will be asked for a photograph
and biographical background, along with a declaration as to their intentions and priorities.

Meanwhile, it is intended that the active campaign for Voter Registration should continue
until 31 January, 2020.

For candidates, the cut-off date has been set for 31 December 2019!

The technical side of the Election Process is at an advanced stage, as required when the
Democratic Transition Commission was created at the 10th Congress in 2016.

However, the building of a recognizable popular Mandate will yet require intense work over coming months if the target of 10,000 voters is to be reached before closure of registration.

The DT Commission, therefore, calls upon all activists who believe in the establishment of fixed democrat norms as a means of ensuring the expansion and strengthening of our national movement to set their hand to this task. Spread the word! Encourage friends, family and colleagues to enroll now!

The long-term aim of creating a Roma Nation Mandate, with voters among the communities throughput the global Roma Diaspora, is both desirable and doable. The foundation has already been laid through the list of several thousands voters in all parts of the world.

It’s the great leap-forward which can gain for the Roma Nation a place among the world family of nations. Not only a place but a political voice commensurate with the size of that Nation Without Borders defined with passion by delegates to the extraordinary 5th Congress in Prague at the start of this millennium.

Alongside the 1971 1st World Roma Congress, the Prague Congress set the parameters. Let us together work to make the scheduled 2020 XI Congress be the one that takes an axe to those chains that have held us down so long!

Viva the Roma Nation!
