abdullah-abdullah1The Chief Executive Officer Dr. Abdullah Abdullah has said another women would be introduced as the member of the Supreme court of Afghanistan following Anisa Rasooly’s rejection by the Afghan parliament.

The commitment CEO Abdullah was made during a meeting with the female lawmakers, women rights advocates and civil society activists on Thursday.

He praised the women role in politics, social and cultural affairs of the country and promised to support the women and their role in the government of national unity.

Abdullah also added that Miss Rasooly was introduced the member of the Supreme Court considering all the legal standards but she could not obtain enough votes from the lawmakers.

Rasooli who holds a degree in Law and Political Science from the University of Kabul was introduced to the Lower House of the Parliament – Wolesi Jirga for formal procedures by President Mohammad Ashraf Ghani to get membership of the Supreme Court of Afghanistan but she could not receive the vote of confidence on Wednesday’s session.

She was introduced to the Afghan Parliament as part of President Ghani’s promise to appoint a female judge in the Supreme Court of Afghanistan during presidential campaign for the second round of election last year.

President Ghani said he has spoken with the religious scholars and the appointment of a female judge in Supreme Court does not have any legal or religious issue.

He said the women have been deprived of their rights all these years and insisted to give them their rights.

Ghani said, “Our pledge is that we will have a woman Chief Justice in our government.”
