Flagbearer of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Brigitte Dzogbenuku, says the Party will pass the Affirmative Action Bill into law in its first 100 days in office.

The Affirmative Action Bill seeks an equal representation and participation of both women and men in governance, public positions of power and also requires all sectors to reserve a percentage of their employment for women.

Madam Dzogbenuku said when voted into power in the December polls, she would pass the bill in 2021 to empower females to rise up the ladder of leadership in Local Governance and improve on their businesses to contribute effectively to the economy.

She said the Party would support local industries, use government purchasing power to create jobs and remain accountable to the people.

Addressing Party faithful during her campaign tour of Tamale North, Madam Dzogbenuku said women play a vital role in the upbringing of children and require much support from Government to do better.

She said some hands-on skills such as basket weaving, oil palm production among others remain the preserve of women and would be given the needed support to meet international standards. The PPP flagbearer said the Party among other initiatives to curb corruption would empower citizens to vote for their Municipal and District Chief Executives and ensure that full percentage of the Assemblies Common Fund is paid to facilitate development.
