Claudine Aoun calls for gender balance in new cabinet


The head of the National Commission for Lebanese Women (NCLW), Claudine Aoun Rukuz, visited on September 9, prime minister designate Mostafa Adib, to ask him to consider gender balance alongside competence in the formation of his new government. This, Rukuz stressed, endorses the role of women in political life and in decision making, and positively impacts the dynamics of government performance in taking the right decisions during this critical period. Rukuz pointed out that the above demand also contributes to realizing the aspirations of Lebanon’s youth in a gender-equal society. She underlined the need to benefit from the aptitudes of Lebanese women who have fully demonstrated their responsibility in all arenas and throughout the various crises that hit the country.
