33 per cent women participation limited to books only, political parties fail to induct 33 per cent women

Kathmandu, June 7

No political party has been able to induct at least 33 per cent women to its central committee, it has been found

The Election Commission has directed all parties to induct 33 per cent women representatives in their respective central committees within three months as per the political party-related laws.

The issue raised after registration of the Nepal Communist Party has dragged all other political parties into the matter.

Talking to Onlinekhabar, Chief Election Commissioner Ayodhee Yadav said,” All political parties should fulfill the provision mentioned in the political parties-related law. Now onwards, they should manage and transform the parties as per the new code.”

Even the four big political parties NCP, Nepali Congress, Rastriya Janata Party Nepal and Federal Socialist Forum have failed to meet the regulations.

There are only 75 women in NCP’s central committee, 16 in Congress, 129 in RJPN, and 28 women in Forum’s.
