At a critical juncture NCLW reiterates its demand for a 30% women’s quota in politics || Newspapers (Arabic)

27-12-2012

Once more, the National Commission for Lebanese Women called for increasing women’s representation in Parliament to at least 30% as part of the discussions of the new electoral law shortly due to restart.  The NCLW regretted the absence of a clear legal text which ensures that women are adequately represented in all discussions related to law petitions and elections.  The NCLW also reminded decision makers that the 1995 Beijing Platform of Action has endorsed a request for a minimum representation of 30% for women in overall parliamentary seats. The women commission also called on policy makers to include women organizations in all current consultations and discussions related to the electoral laws.
