Mu Sochua to lead women’s caucus

Sam Rainsy Party parliamentarian Mu Sochua has been named chairwoman of the Women’s Caucus of the Council of Asian Liberals and Democrats (CALD), an association comprised of eight political parties from Southeast Asia. Mu Sochua was appointed after the SRP was elected chair-party of the CALD during a meeting of the organisation in the Philippines last May. Her term took effect this month, and the SRP will serve as chair-party of the CALD until May 2011. “CALD is confident that through the leadership of Madame Sochua and the Sam Rainsy Party as chair and chair-party, respectively, the CALD Women’s Caucus will be able to continue to carry out the agenda of liberal women in Asia,” the CALD said in a statement last week.
