Dr Luveni encourages women

Social Welfare, Poverty and Women Minister Dr Jiko Luveni says she will like to see more women in parliament after the general election in September.

Dr Luveni said the ministry, through a project that was funded by the UN Women, had trained some trainers from the ministry to go to the different divisions to provide training to women about the election.

"The trainers had trained and encouraged the women around the country to be involved in the election process and we had to encourage them to register and vote," she said.

"We encourage women to stand for election this year and to join political parties during any election.

"We had done that last year and we hope that women who are interested to participate in the election are ready to take part, especially with the knowledge they have from the training that was conducted."

Dr Luveni said she would like to encourage more women out there to apply in this year's election.

"We like to see more women in parliament and that will depend on women who are willing to come on board."
