Qabas: Saudi official request to appoint women in the judiciary
Follow-up / Sky Press:
A member of the Saudi Shura Council, Dr. Faisal Al-Fadil, called for the appointment of women judges of legal and legal competence, denouncing the fact that the percentage of women in the judges' posts is zero.
Al-Qabas newspaper quoted Al-Fadhil as saying during the discussion of the annual report of the Committee on Islamic Affairs and Judiciary that he regretted the percentage of women's participation in the judiciary. The number of vacancies is 1655, 35% At the SAI.
Al Fadhil condemned the lack of participation of the female component despite the presence of legal and legal competencies ready to assume those positions. He suggested that the Committee amend its first recommendation to include the female component and increase the participation of women in judicial work, both judicially and administratively.
In a related context, the Saudi Shura Council adopted a decision that frustrated many Saudi women. The Council rejected the recommendation to empower Saudi women to lead the embassies, consulates and attachés of the Kingdom and to support them for positions in international organizations.
It was recommended by a number of members of the Council and adopted by the Committee on Foreign Affairs in the Council under the chairmanship of Zuhair al-Harthy, before falling by one vote only, according to the newspaper "Okaz" Saudi Arabia.
