Abuse by State Coun­cil to­wards women’s ap­point­ments: Gadal­lah

The Daily News Egypt - - Women -

Om­naya Gadal­lah, who filed a case against the State Coun­cil for re­fus­ing to en­roll women in the State Coun­cil, said that there is abuse by the coun­cil to­wards women’s ap­point­ments in the coun­cil.

This came dur­ing the con­fer­ence on the prob­lems of women`s ap­point­ment in the ju­di­ciary, which was or­gan­ised by the Nazra In­sti­tu­tion for Women Stud­ies and the Egyp­tian Women’s Is­sues Foun­da­tion.

Many ac­tivists in hu­man and women’s rights at­tended this con­fer­ence, such as Mozin Has­san, Azza Soli­man, Mona Zuelfakar, Amal Abd El Hady, Ge­orge Eshak, and some mem­bers of the 50th Com­mit­tee to Amend the Con­sti­tu­tion, such as Amr El­shobky and Amr Salah.

Dur­ing the con­fer­ence, they dis­cussed the rea­sons for the ab­sence of women from the State Coun­cil from a his­tor­i­cal and le­gal point of view and talked about the law­suit filed by ad­vo­cate Om­nia Gadal­lah, which is ex­pected to be pre­sented to the sec­ond ses­sion of the Supreme Court ofAd­min­is­tra­tion

THE NUM­BER OF FE­MALE JUDGES DOES NOT EX­CEED HALF THE NUM­BER OF MALE JUDGES

on Satur­day 11 Novem­ber.

Mean­while, Gadal­lah re­viewed a num­ber of laws, ar­ti­cles of the Con­sti­tu­tion, and in­ter­na­tional agree­ments that sup­port women’s equal­ity right in ap­point­ment in all ju­di­ciary in­sti­tu­tions.

More­over, she asked why she should not be ap­pointed for four years now, and why the State Coun­cil is the op­po­nent and the judge at the same time, not­ing that the num­ber of fe­male judges does not ex­ceed half the num­ber of male judges.
