Women rights Lobbyists demand the President to include women in his government



Hargeisa- In a press statement issued yesterday, 18th October 2018, women rights activists called the president of Somaliland to respect the constitution and end gender inequality in his government.

The statement said: “all civil society organizations particularly Somaliland women organizations clearly express their complaint against the system the president of the Republic of Somaliland, Muse Behi Abdi, appoints his government {officials] including the council of ministers, director generals, regional governors, executive secretaries of local governments, regional coordinators, independent agencies, the judiciary, presidential advisors and all government branches.”

Women are active participants in campaigns and are the largest voters in the country, the statement said. However, “women have not received their rights enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Somaliland,” the statement added.

“Lastly, Somaliland women call on the President of the Republic of Somaliland, Muse Behi Abdi, women to get their constitutional right,” the statement concludes.
