Parliamentarians, members of civil society and women’s rights activists all have vehemently urged political parties to ensure effective implementation of 5pc quota in awarding party tickets to women on general seats as per Election Act 2017 in the upcoming general elections later this month.
They were speaking at the launch of the report “Making Gender Quota Meaningful”, organized and published by Heinrich Boell Stiftung at Serena Hotel on Wednesday. The authors, Rukhshanda Naz and Hasan Nasir Mirbahar, have provided the readers details of the historical context of the gender quota as well as the legal framework for women’s political participation.
