Rwandan Women Take Majority of Parliamentary Seats

Women will take 67.5% of seats in the next Lower House going by the latest results from the just-concluded parliamentary elections. Given that 64% of parliamentarians in the outgoing chamber of deputies were women, the increased number of women parliamentarians in the house has been applauded by many.
