Speaker of the National Assembly, Mr. Ayaz Sadiq talks about enhancing women’s participation in politics.

The Speaker of the National Assembly Mr. Ayaz Sadiq talks about his commitment to bringing forth legislation to ensure women’s effective and meaningful political participation. This was during a seminar, “Women’s Participation in Politics – Making Quota Seats more Democratic”, held by the Women’s Parliamentary Caucus and supported by UN Women and UNDP.

“I often find my women colleagues going the extra mile and putting in the extra effort to prove their worth. We have seen the sustainable growth of strong women candidates. If parties promote these candidates they can find candidates who will win seats,” said Mr. Sadiq.
