Progress on gender balance in Namibia

The representation of women in Namibia improves with changed law implementing 50/50 representation in party structures.

'Nikanor said the country also has the second-highest number of women parliamentarians in Africa, and thanked President Hage Geingob for agreeing to amend the Swapo Party constitution in order to allow the 50/50 gender representation in all structures of the party.'
