Zambia's acting President calls on parties to ensure 5050

The Acting President of Zambia, Ms Inonge Wina called for all political parties in Zambia to 

ensure that they adopt more women at all levels of this year’s General Elections to meet the 50-50 gender parity that is required by the Southern African Development Community (SADC) protocol on Gender.
Ms Wina, who is the Republican Vice President, said this year’s elections were very important not only because of the 50 plus one threshold to elect a Republican President but also because of the need to have more women participation.
