King Abdullah Bin Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia issued Friday a historic decree allowing women to be members of the kingdom’s previously all-male Shura Council for the first time. The decree amended two article in the council’s statute introducing a 20 percent quota for women in the country’s 150-member Shura Council, and the king appointed 30 women to join the consultative assembly.

In Lebanon, women still fight for their basic rights such as transmitting their nationality,
have women in the political parties, have women on political parties lists, have women in Parliament.
The most conservative country alias Saudi Arabia was able to empower some women ” bin and bint… of someone) to be part of the Parliament, in Lebanon, do we need a decree by the supreme court to have Women participate in Politics?
for the info: the Lebanese government doesnt have Any women;
at the parliament Lebanon has some women, that are the daughters, or sisters, or funding ($) members of someone, or blocks….
our Nation needs change, I wont vote for Maronites women…. I would love to vote for good Candidates wherever their confession is, but I would love to know that they will engage with us on pushing forward for our Civil=Lebanese State Laws!!!
