Founded in 1990, after the Romanian Revolution, the Party of the Roma is the official political association of the Romani minority and consequently has one reserved seat in the Chamber of Deputies, regardless of its electoral performance. The party has contested every election since the 1992 suffrage, but has never passed the 5% threshold required for it to gain extra seats. At the 2000, 2004 and 2012 legislative elections, the Party of the Roma signed a protocol of reciprocal electoral support with the Social Democratic Party.
