FAQ commentary on Nepalese Women Leader
“FAQ on Sujata Koirala”
I would like to extend my sincere congratulations and warm greetings to Hon. Ms. Sujata Koirala for her outstanding political achievements.
Who is Sujata Koirala?
Newly appointed Hon. Minister Ms. Sujata Koirala is a strong and active female personality of Nepal Congress Party of Nepal, who holds special expertise in national and international political arena. She has been working in the capacity of chief: International Division of Nepali Congress Party. She is an executive member of central committee of Nepali Congress Party and member of Interim Parliament.
In addition, she has a grand and unique opportunity to observe the evolution of political and democratic development in Nepal, beginning since her childhood and by empirical observation through the eyes of G.P Koirala.
She is informally active in politics since her uncle BP and father GP Koirala were actively involved in the democratic revolution in Nepal despite living an exiled life in India; after 1990 she officially adopted an active political career.
Why Sujata is appointed as a Minister?
Basically her appointment is considered part of state commitment towards the inclusion of women in the overall State affairs & decision-making system. She holds more than enough political, legal and professional capabilities and is emerging as a most eligible candidate for Minister in the Nepali Congress Party as well as the nation. Before labeling her position as nepotism or favouritism, one can also compare her with other existing and past women members of the minister council. Obviously, she would be more eligible than others (7 indicators to conclude this).
Beginning of political affiliation and activities, academic ground, professional capability, contribution for social development and welfare (She has been contributing more than the local State mechanisms through her NGOs/charity/foundations in various sector and part of Nepal), capabilities of international relations and political diplomacy, political and social hold in respective areas and sector, popularity in national and international affairs, & personal and political performance.
However, these comparisons must be based on the span of age and his/her achieved political productivity.
