5/3/2013, Press Release protesting for the appointment of the Council of Ministers

The Board of EKIF, at its monthly regular meeting on 5 March 2013, decided to issue a Press Release strongly protesting against the appointment of only men to the Council of Ministers of the new Government. EKIF expressed its disappointment that no woman was appointed, thus having deprived 51% of the population of the island of their democratic right to participate in the government of their own country. EKIF called upon the President of the Cyprus Republic and the coalition parties to observe the principle of gender equality in future political appointments
