The Speaker of ECOWAS Parliament Moustapha Cisse-Lo has called on all member countries to ensure thirty per cent women representation in its ranks.
He made the remark during a courtesy visit to the President of Burkina Faso, Roch Marc Christian Kaboré, and the Speaker of Burkina Faso National Assembly, Bala Alassane Sakandé in Ouagadougou.
According to The Speaker, thirty per cent women representation in the Parliament is one of the major objectives he hopes to achieve before the end of his tenure in 2020.
Cisse-Lo, said that ECOWAS had not achieved that because member states always selected men as Parliamentarians.
He said the meeting is a friendly one, because they have to discuss about single currency which will be good for the ECOWAS Population.
He added that his tenure ends in 2020 and new members of parliament will be selected, they discussed on how to ensure continuity on the projects we have done.
