MOVEE elects 7 women chairpersons

By Emmanuel wise Jipoh 

Women’s political representation and empowerment are getting required national traction here as the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE) elects seven women as county chairpersons, ahead of elections in 2023.

 (MOVEE announced the landmark achievement at the conclusion of its county conventions, whereas other parties have not satisfied the 30% gender quota.

National chairman Robert Sammie added, “We are quite impressed and proud of the milestone that this achievement has established,” in reference to his party’s success.

At the recently concluded conventions in all fifteen (15) counties, which lasted 22 days, the party elected seven (7) women, making up 43.3% of the 15 elected county chairpersons.

 “I have come to joyfully announce the completion of the Party’s county conventions, which have set a new record for women’s political involvement and empowerment in Liberia,” Chairman Sammie noted at the party’s headquarters in Paynesville on Sunday, November 27, 2022. 

The exercise began on November 3 in Montserrado County and finished on November 23, 2022, in Grand Gedeh County. 

Bringing women to the national decision-making table, according to the Party, is one of the most pressing concerns in the world, but many political parties and leaderships in Liberia are accused of downplaying women’s participation.
