UK Home Secretary’s message to Lebanese women candidates on IWD

UK Home Secretary Amber Rudd has used the occasion of International Women’s Day, and centenary of women’s suffrage, to wish Lebanese women candidates good luck, saying they have the “strength, grit and determination to succeed.”

The Home Secretary, one of the most senior ministers in the UK cabinet headed by PM Theresa May, pre-recorded the clip during her visit to Lebanon on 19 February. During the visit she met her counterpart Interior Minister Nohad Machnouk and discussed the upcoming elections, including hopes that they would lead to a greater number of women MPs.
