International demands for increasing women representation in the Regional Government

12/6/2019 19:18:00

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.
