The Women’s Wing of the People’s National Convention (PNC) is passionately appealing to Ghanaians to vote massively for the party, especially its female parliamentary candidates across the country.

“We appeal to the Ghanaian public to broaden their support beyond traditional party lines and consider backing the women candidates of the PNC. Our democracy thrives when diverse voices are represented, and by supporting women from various political backgrounds, we strengthen the fabric of our multiparty system.”

The Women’s Wing of the party expressed its intention to nominate 40 percent of the parliamentary seats across the 275 constituencies to women in the upcoming December 2024 general elections.

“As part of the PNC initiative, Operation Get Women Parliamentarians, the People’s National Convention is proud to announce our intention to field 40% women parliamentary candidates across the nation in the upcoming 2024 elections.”

At a press conference after a three-day workshop on capacity building in the southern sector, held in Koforidua in the Eastern region, the Acting Women’s Organizer sponsored by GENCED, Patience Lamisi Johnson, said the initiative known as ‘Operation Get Women Parliamentarians’ aims to enhance women’s participation in broader decision-making processes and fortify the country’s multiparty system.

“The workshop aimed to empower and equip women vying for parliamentary seats with the necessary skills and knowledge to actively participate in the upcoming 2024 parliamentary elections. We believe in the power of women’s representation in governance and are committed to ensuring that women’s voices are heard and their contributions valued in shaping the future of our nation.”

The PNC also calls upon the parliament to prioritize and pass the Affirmative Action Bill into law. According to them, the legislation is essential in addressing the systemic barriers that hinder women’s full participation in politics. “By enacting this bill, we can ensure that women are not marginalized or erased from the political landscape of Ghana.”
