Gov't invites Bosniak associations to nominate candidate for National Minority Council

The Croatian government on Thursday called on Bosniak ethnic minority associations, organisations, religious communities, legal entities and citizens to nominate their candidate for a position in the National Minorities Council from the ranks of prominent cultural, scientific, expert and religious workers.

The candidate should be a person who will promote tolerance and coexistence by affirming their own culture, language and tradition, a person who will contribute to understanding and dialogue between all Croatian citizens and promote ethnic, cultural and religious diversities in Croatia, the government said in the call carried by the National Gazette.

The candidacies must to be submitted by 24 March to the government's Office for Human and National Minorities' Rights.

The National Minority Council was set up to encourage ethnic minorities to take part in Croatia's public life and to try to find solutions to ethnic minority issues.
