#GHELECTIONS: FEMALE PARLIAMENTARIANS NOW 35

#GHELECTIONS: FEMALE PARLIAMENTARIANS NOW 35. Ghana’s next Parliament will see 35 women take their place as female legislators after the 2016 general elections. This number is an increase of 6, in from the election 2012 figure of 29, where 133 women contested 102 parliamentary seats. Of the 35 seats, 12 are held by the National Democratic Congress (NDC), and 23 held by the New Patriotic Party (NPP). But the figure represents only 12.72 percent of the total parliamentarians, yet again falling short of the 30 percent mark activists at the Beijing Conference of 1995 deemed satisfactory. Ghana’s Sub-Saharan African counterparts; Rwanda, Senegal and South Africa, feature rates of 63.80 percent, 42.70 percent
