Head of Lebanese-Gulf business development against women’s quota


The head of the Lebanese-Gulf Business Development Commission, Elie Rizk, reportedly rejected the women’s representation quota in the legislature, according to Al Diyar yesterday. He said he preferred to see females get their rights through the work they perform, in criticism of some women who entered the parliament but were preoccupied with serving their own interests while not participating in drafting bills like European female lawmakers who, he claimed, respect their occupation. Rizk also condemned discrimination inside Lebanese unions of business women, like the union headed by Madiha Arslan, which is not represented by one single man, compared to businessmen’s associations that include women members.
