#30peratus

This promise is stated in the Pakatan Harapan manifesto, “Buku Harapan”, in ‘Iltizam Khas Untuk Wanita’ number 5, “Democratizing the political system, so that more women leaders can get to the forefront,”, promise number 2, “Ensuring at least 30 percent of decision makers in all levels of governance to be women”.
