WOLREC Project Officer, Evance Phiri made the request on Wednesday in Neno during an interface meeting between chiefs, religious leaders, media and political parties for increased support for female aspirants.

Phiri said WOLREC will engage meetings with political party leadership to fundraise for young female aspirants in 2019 parliamentary and Local Government Elections.
