Bosnia Project Hosts Talk Show Featuring New Chair of the FBizH Women’s Caucus
On Wednesday, May 27 USAID/Strengthening Governing Institutions and Processes (SGIP) in Bosnia and Herzegovina hosted a radio call-in program featuring Member of Parliament Kenela Zuko. MP Zuko, who won a seat in the Parliament of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina's House of Representatives in the October 2014 elections, has been selected to chair the FBiH Women's Caucus.
The main topic of the show was the recent establishment of the Women's Caucus; MP Zuko stressed that she will try to push Women's Caucus members to actively promote the Caucus's ideas and initiatives within their own party groups. MP Zuko took calls from listeners about her own experiences as a woman in political life, and stressed that she will not hesitate to fight for more women in leadership positions, starting with her own political party. The show—the fifteenth in a series of call-in-programs with female MPs, began with a short report on women in politics in Central Bosnia Canton, an example of a Canton with remarkable political diversity.
