GE15: women lawmakers have significant edge over male counterparts, says PBM
25 days ago
KUALA LUMPUR – Parti Bangsa Malaysia (PBM) today once again reiterated its call for the electorate to give the party an opportunity in the coming general election and increase the number of female representatives in the Dewan Rakyat.
Its Hulu Selangor candidate, Haniza Mohamed Talha, said the composition of women MPs in the Dewan Rakyat was only around 15% of the total 222 members.
“This is still a far cry from the target of at least 30% women MPs, which many had aspired to see.
“PBM walks the talk when it comes to women empowerment. Of the six parliamentary seats we are contesting, four of them are women,” she said in a statement.
