Nezdet Mustafa: Portrait of a Romani politician
Nezdet Mustafa is currently the mayor of Suto Orizari, an independent municipality in the Macedonian capital of Skopje.
Nezdet Mustafa - "Nedzo"
Nezdet Mustafa is a charismatic Romani man who was born in 1962. After his high school education, he studied philosophy. At the moment he is studying towards a post-graduate degree in social work and political science at the university in Skopje. Nezdet's first Romani cultural activities started when he was a high school student. During the 1979-1980 school year, he was a member of the Romani theatre group Student. During the same period, he was active in some non-Romani youth organisations in Macedonia.
In 1992, Nezdet was one of the people who established the Romani broadcast Bijandipe at Macedonian Television in Skopje.
In 1994, Nezdet Mustafa went to Germany and established himself in Cologne. There he worked especially on the issue of trying to secure the right of stay in Germany for Roma from Macedonia, many of whom were threatened with expulsion from Germany. Soon after arriving in Germany, he established an organization in Cologne, which cooperated with the Hamburg-based Roma National Congress in organizing a series of protests against the expulsions. In 1996, Nezdet returned to Macedonia and in November of the same year he became mayor of the Suto Orizari municipality, having secured around 9000 votes out of a total registered voting body of 12,330. In November 2000, he was re-elected as mayor of Suto Orizari municipality. His platform has fairly consistently been, from the beginning:
In early summer 2001, it was at the initiative of Mr Mustafa that Macedonia's "smaller minorities" - Roma, Serbs, Turks and Vlachs, formed a common platform during negotiations over Macedonia's future legal and administrative basis, brought about by anti-state violence by ethnic Albanians in Macedonia and international efforts to resolve the dispute.
I spoke with Nezdet Mustafa in September 2001 about his views on politics and Romani issues. A condensed transcript of our discussion follows:
Nezdet Mustafa:

Nezdet Mustafa, 38, Europe's only Romani mayor and president of Macedonia's United Roma Party, is young, well-dressed and intense, and - a true politician - he reveals virtually nothing about anything.That could be because he has a degree in philosophy.Or because, as he says, you can't achieve much in four years when Shutka has been neglected for 35.Or perhaps he just has no answer to "Why is Shutka such a dump? "

But Nezdet Mustafa doesn't need journalists' approval to be in control in Shutka.As any modern politician knows, getting into people's living rooms is the key to success, and Nezdet Mustafa is the owner of Shutel TV, Shutka's Romani TV station.
