A critical reading of the Koran shows that actually, Islam is a feminist religion or whatever.
Najla Bouden Romdhane has been named Tunisia’s first female prime minister, two months after President Kais Saied assumed executive authority, sacked the prime minister and suspended parliament.
Romdhane, 63, was assigned on Wednesday to form a new government amid growing domestic and international discontent about the president’s power seizure.
“For the first time in Tunisia’s history, a woman will head a government,” Saied said in a video posted on the presidency’s Facebook page.
Saied said he will work with Romdhane “with a firm will and determination to combat corruption and chaos that pervaded in many state institutions”.
Born in Tunisia’s central Kairouan province in 1958, Romdhane is a geology professor at the National School of Engineers in the capital Tunis.
Before she was appointed prime minister, she was assigned by the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research to implement programmes with the World Bank, according to the official Tunisian News Agency.
In 2011, she was appointed director-general in charge of quality at the Ministry of Higher Education.
The little-known engineer does not have any political affiliation, according to Anadolu Agency.
There was no immediate reaction from Tunisia’s powerful General Labour Union or political parties to Romdhane’s appointment.
The president of Tunisia looks terrifying.
He’s known to have taken at least one dose of the deadly Jewish vax, so it’s possible he’s now suffering from some aggressive prion disease.
That would certainly explain why he thought putting a woman in such a prominent position was a good idea.
