Demographics

Šuto Orizari is the only municipality in the country where Roma make up a majority of the population. Out of a total population of 17,357 in the 2002 census, 13,311 people (76.7%) were of Roma ethnicity. [1] Other significant ethnic groups include Albanians (15.0%) and Macedonians (5.5%). During the recent conflict in Kosovo many Romani refugees found shelter here. The people of Shuto Orizari are roughly divided between the religions of Orthodox Christianity and Islam, there is a significant muslim Tarika of Sufi Islam (Dervish).

Politics

Due to the demographics, both Romani and Macedonian are official languages in Shuto Orizari. Albanian and Serbian are also spoken, but are not official languages. The mayor of the municipality, Erduan Iseini, is an ethnic Rom.

In 2009, the Government of the Republic of Macedonia took further measures to enlarge inclusion of Roma in the education process. The cornerstone of a Government-funded secondary school for Šuto Orizari was laid on 10 February 2009, an investment worth 1.6 million Euro.[2]
