UN says the ballot is the best weapon Afghan women have

Bangladesh Business News

 

This is a historic election and the first time that power is to be transferred from one democratically elected leader to another. This is also the first Afghan election under full control of the Afghan authorities. It may prove to be a watershed in terms of female participation as well.
 

”It is encouraging that 35 per cent of newly-registered voters are women, more than 300 women are standing as candidates for the Provincial Council polls and three women are standing for the Vice-Presidency,” Nicholas Haysom, the deputy head of the UN presence in Afghanistan, known by the acronym UNAMA, said in a statement on Friday.

According to Haysom, who serves as the Deputy Representative of the Secretary-General in that country, "We think the ballot is the best weapon that women have to place their concerns on the table and to have them addressed.”
 

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged Afghans to “to have their say on the future direction of their country.” Denouncing violence by any group, the UN chief specifically condemned statements by the Taliban threatening further attacks on civilian election workers, candidates, observers, voters and election sites.
