The recently launched project entitled “Strengthening Women Political Leadership in Local Governance Systems” is a welcome step as it will help ensure women representation in local government institutions in the province. In a democratic society, it is essential to give women their due political representation in local government systems and decision making process at local level.
Therefore, the move calls for applause and the credit for this goes to government whose endless efforts may result in strengthening of women political leadership in local governance system. Whatever has been done is good but more needs to be done. It is hoped that the government along with the civil society would take further necessary steps not only for empowerment of women but also for strong local governance system in the province.
