A group of politicians and activists launched a campaign to demand greater representation of women in the next government in the Kurdistan Region.


In a statement to PUKmedia, Rezan Dler, a former member of the Council of Representatives for the PUK bloc, said that she and a group of politicians and activists launched a campaign to demand representation of women in the Kurdistan Regional Government next, adding that “We visited the political parties and the Speaker of the Parliament of Kurdistan and the Supreme Council for Women, and we were handed a statement in which we call on the political parties participating in the government to have women representation more than 30% in their shares in the ministerial cab."


Rezan Dler added: "We launched a special hash-tag for the campaign on social platforms to be a factor in the dissemination of the campaign on a large scale," noting that "until now there is no women's committee in the Parliament of Kurdistan, and there is no law of the Supreme Commission for Women."


Rezan said that their campaign calls for the representation of women in the presidency of the region and the Council of Ministers, expressing regret for the lack of a woman in any position of the presidency of the province, despite the presence of dozens of staff and advisers in the institution of the presidency.
