MP Ghassan Moukheiber to the Daily Star: Absence of women ministers in the new cabinet is a true disappointment

Lawmaker Ghassan Mokhaiber, a member of Aoun’s parliamentary bloc and advocate of women’s rights said that the recent Cabinet lineup without women is “a true disappointment.” In a telephone call with the Daily Star, Mokhaiber hoped that this development would not be a trend to follow.
“Such a trend should not be repeated by politicians and all Lebanese women must exert pressure to correct this mistake,” said Mokhaiber adding that the country needs more women politicians than it currently has.
According to Mokhaiber, women should be available in all matters of politics and not only on women’s matters. “When this is done, their participation won’t be circumstantial,” he added.
