The Elections Commission has taken steps to increase the amount of female representation in political parties. Thereby, laws will be enacted enabling 1/5th of female representation among the Party Executive Board when registering political parties.

The Elections Commission goes on to note that the necessary amendments will be made to match the provisions allotted for all the political parties that are currently active.

Thereby, amendments will be made to facilitate 1 4th of female representation on nomination boards. Parliament recently enacted laws which enabled 25 percent of female representation in local government bodies.
