11 Lebanese women candidate to the next parliament elections visit the European parliament || Newspapers (Arabic)


Eleven women candidate to the nest elections took part in sessions of the European parliament in Brussels between 10 and 12 April for the purpose of strengthening their capacity to participate in political decision making.  The visit of the eleven candidates, all members of the Women in Front organization, coincided with the holding of the annual general assembly of the Union for the Mediterranean.  As such, the Lebanese visitors had the opportunity of meeting with other women active in gender equality in both Southern and Northern countries.  The Lebanese delegation called for strengthening the representation of women in the Lebanese parliament and for adopting a quota system especially as Lebanon ranks 128th amongst 134 countries in terms of women political participation (women’s current participation in parliament does not exceed 3.12%).
