Women in Parliment
I am just interested on the analogy used by Katya as that of making reservations in hotels to the notion of reserving sits for women in parliment. Can any one enlighten us on how that will be done if voting for the reserved seats must be done. In other words who will decide on which constituencies for women candidates only? On the other hand what happens if men also contest along with women in the selected constituencies and all male are again voted in? To me it will only work if the ten women are appointed or the selected constituencies are only for women candidates to contest. But I am just wondering if provisions for such arrangements are in place in our current constitution or may be those are provisions that must be ammended to cater for the ten reserved seats. On the whole I would like to see some women in parliment but through the democratic process stipulated by our constitution.
