Ghana: WiLDAF petitions Mahama to appoint 40% women in new government

The Women in Law and Development in Africa (WiLDAF) has presented names of 65 women it says can be appointed by President John Mahama in his government.

The names were contained in a petition signed by Bernice Sam, Executive Director, WiLDAF Ghana, and sent to the president.

The petition was headlined “Affirmative Action: Appoint 40% Women in NDC Government.”

WiLDAF says the NDC must in fulfillment of its own manifesto in 2012 have 40 per cent of women representation in all public appointments.
