Record: Now Has 68% Women In Parliament



by Staff Writer September 4, 2018

Rwanda has broken it’s current world record of 64% women representation in parliament.

The new world record for women representation in parliament has now shot up to 67.5%.

Out of 80, now women occupy 54 seats, which is 67.5%.

The new record came out on Tuesday night after the National Electoral Commission announced the September 3 parliamentary elections results, which saw President Kagame’s party, RPF sweeping 74% of the total vote and taking 40 seats.
