Women in govt should be prioritised: NGOs

In a statement released yesterday, Women for All, a coalition of 25 student and community groups and NGOs, called on the government and political parties to address the decrease in elected female representatives indicated by preliminary election results.

According to unofficial results from Comfrel, only 16 women were elected as parliamentarians this election – making up 13 per cent of the total 123 seats.

One of Cambodia’s Millennium Development Goals targets is to have 30 per cent female representation in the National Assembly by 2015.
