Mohamed Ennaceur receives delegation from African Parliament

Speaker of the House of People’s Representatives (HPR) Mohamed Bennaceur stressed that the legal and legislative status of the Tunisian woman “is privileged in relation to certain neighbouring countries”, recalling that Tunisia “was pioneer since independence in the consecration of the rights and gains of women who play an important role in society, “according to statement released on Monday.

Bennaceur who was speaking at a meeting with a delegation from the African Parliament, added that Tunisia will take steps on the consolidation of women’s economic and social rights, their participation without discrimination in the various aspects of life.

The delegation of the African Parliament gave an overview of the consultations for the adoption of the protocol to the African Charter on Human and Peoples’ Rights on the Rights of Women in Africa (Maputo Protocol) and the process of its integration into Tunisian law. It highlighted the “place of choice of Tunisian women” considered as an exception in Africa and in the Arab countries which will be consolidated by means of this protocol. It consolidates the protection of the rights of African women in areas that are not included in other agreements, such as the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (Cedaw) agreement.

The meeting was attended by Deputy Jamila Ksiksi Debbech, deputy speaker of the parliament in charge of civil society and member of the African parliament.

As part of the visit, the African delegation plans to meet with civil society and representatives of the ministries of foreign affairs, justice and women, with the aim of promoting the Maputo protocol and exchanging experience with legislative arrangements in the field of women’s rights.

The delegation, chaired by a member of the African parliament in Djibouti, Bilil Hasna, is composed of four other members representing Togo, Rwanda, Cameroon and Burundi.
