Following a meeting, the leaders called on the political blocs and parties to adopt a clear vision based on human rights demands as a basic criterion for the appointment of the candidate for prime minister.

They insisted on the ability of Lebanese women to hold high cabinet positions and provide solutions in various fields on the way to help save the nation from crisis.

The platform highlighted the efforts of Lebanese women to access positions in the country’s political and governmental scene after many years of discrimination and injustice.

Only eight women of the total of 118 candidates present in the electoral lists of last May 15th received the vote to integrate the 128-member Parliament, which in Lebanon is divided equally between Muslims and Christians.

In the current legislature, representatives Enaya Ezz El-Din, Paula Yacoubian, Strida Geagea, Najat Saliba, Halima Al-Qaaqour, Cynthia Zarazir, Ghada Ayoub and Nada Al-Boustani secured seats for the 2022-2026 term.
