Political parties advised to adopt females for parliamentary seats

Zambia Women’s Lobby Group Chairperson Beatrice Phiri has reiterated her organization’s call for political parties to identify and adopt female candidates in the forthcoming tripartite elections.

Speaking to hot fm, Phiri said there is no need for parties to give excuses for not choosing women as they have expressed interest in participating in the elections.

She noted that women organizations should come together and encourage women to contest seats so that the number of female parliamentarians can increase.
