Dear Chairperson Bhengu:
We write to lend our support to the Ad Hoc Committee working on the selection of the new Commission for Gender Equality (CGE) commissioners.
As members of civil society organisations working to advance women’s rights, we respectfully ask the Ad Hoc Committee to ask candidates to address the questions and issues posed in this letter.
In the spirit of transparency, we acknowledge that some organisations amongst those listed here have advocated for the selection of people who have been shortlisted and others who were not. We do not write this to advance the candidacy of any individual.
