The British Consul-General in the Kurdistan Region, Martyn Warr sent a message to the region calling for increased representation of women in the next government.
Martyn Warr said that the representation of women in the Parliament of Kurdistan is about 30%, hoping that women will receive similar representation in the next government.
Rezan Dler, a former member of the Council of Representatives on Wednesday 12/6/2019 praised the position of the British consulate in a statement to PUKmedia and said: "We already have 30% women representation in the Parliament of Kurdistan and the government needs that representation because women have a strong role in the government."
She added:"We need support from the British consulate and the rest of the consulates in the region, so that women can represent at least 30% of the new government, this means that the government has to have 6 to 7 female ministers."
She noted that she expects the next government to include 3 women ministers.
