LF supports women’s full nationality right and draft bill from Democratic Gathering

7-8-2018

In the framework of its visits to political parties to brief them on their amendment proposal, My Nationality Is A Right For Me And My Family Campaign announced in a statement yesterday that it has met with Lebanese Forces Bloc member Antoine Habshi and discussed with him nationality matters and arguments put forward by opponents to said law. Habshi expressed to the Campaign representatives his backing to all the rights of women, including the right to nationality, noting that he will work fully to adjust the law in order to give the Lebanese mothers their rights to grant nationality to their family members, according to the statement. On the other hand, the Democratic Gathering bloc submitted a draft bill to the Legislature concerning the acquisition of nationality following a debate caused by the recent naturalization decree, said MP Hadi Abul Hassan. The proposal, he clarified, seeks to bring about justice and equality among the Lebanese in civil rights, modernize laws related to nationality, realize the right of Lebanese women to confer nationality to their children and settle the case of stateless persons in Lebanon. (For the full text of the draft bill, kindly visit the following link: https://goo.gl/MaJD9m. My Nationality is a Right for me and My Family Campaign praised the stand of the Gathering, stating that it will support the endorsement of either of above proposals, hoping they will not be buried in the Lebanese parliament’s drawers.
