Mitmug, Mawallil propose “zipper rule” in nominations

Mitmug is proposing a “zipper rule” in nominations

“Parties should nominate men and women in an alternating sequence. If your first nominee is a man, then the second nominee should be a woman, and so on and so forth. This way, we can achieve an almost equal number of men and women in Parliament, as envisioned by the [Bangsamoro Organic Law],” Mitmug stated.

Mitmug believes that female representation should also be extended to political party committees, not just nominees.

“If we were to truly have effective women’s representation in the Bangsamoro Government, it should start in the political party committees, deeply ingrained in the machinery of where leadership training really begins,” Mitmug said.
