Electoral rights of immigrants discussed in Malmö PDF Print E-mail

Tuesday, 11 March 2014 00:00
A study visit and seminar on electoral rights of third country nationals, organized for 28 participants from 9 states  of Central and Eastern EU, took place in Malmö last week. Government,  municipal and immigrants´ association representatives were invited by the Organization for Aid to Refugees and Malmö University to learn from the Swedish experience in including immigrants into public and political life. The event, supported by the European Union, was a unique learning opportunity for Central and Eastern EU experts with a view to improve participation of immigrants in local election or in five states (Czech Republic, Latvia, Romania, Bulgaria and Poland) to brainstorm the idea of granting the electoral rights to third country nationals.
The Romanian National Council for Refugees shares the view that granting electoral rights to immigrants with permanent resident permit  is very important for their participation in the public life and for shaping migration policies not for the purpose of exploitation of cheap workforce but based on the principle of equal opportunities like in Sweden.

Almost 80% of voters approved changes made to the asylum law last September, final results of a referendum said.

Under the new rules military desertion is no longer a reason for granting asylum, and people cannot now apply through Swiss foreign embassies.

About 48,000 people are in the process of seeking asylum in Switzerland.

But the number of asylum seekers is rising sharply and is at its highest in a decade.
