Press Release

Congratulations To The New Female President of Parliament Committee B

Fundasaun Mahein (FM) congratulates Parliament Committee B’s very first female leader, Maria Lurdes Martins de Sousa Bessa, on her committee presidency. FM gladly welcomes this historic moment for Parliament Committee B, which is tasked with providing recommendations for laws and decisions related to defense, national security, and foreign affairs.

Since its inception, the male perspective – via male leadership and predominantly male membership – has dominated Parliament Committee B. This new committee presidency is a positive step forward for women in government. It also indicates a new level of empowerment for women in the defense and security sectors. It is an inspiration to the women of Timor-Leste.

There are now three female members in Parliament Committee B, including the president and one veteran – Maria Lurdes Martins de Sousa Bessa, Maria Rosa da Câmara “Bi Soi”, and Ana da Conceição Ribeiro. Committee B is composed of nine members total. Fundasaun Mahein (FM) hopes these three women will faithfully advocate for the interests of Timorese women on all future defense, national security, and foreign affairs legislation. These women can guarantee that future laws will not favor men by default because discussions failed to delve into women’s interests.

FM also hopes that these women will focus Committee B’s attention on women’s issues in the security sector. The committee lacked this focus over the last three years, but such focus is important in a country with high rates of domestic violence. Serious issues exist for women in Timor-Leste’s security sector and must be discussed. These issues include violence against female police officers, violence against female military officers, and the enforcement of laws designed to protect women.

List of PN Committee B:

1. Maria Lurdes Martins de Sousa Bessa – President
2. Duarte Nunes – Vice President
3. Jacinto Viegas Vicente – Sectary
4. César Valente de Jesus – Member
5. Maria Rosa da Câmara “BI SOI” – Member
6. David Dias Ximenes – Member
7. Manuel Gaspar Soares da Silva – Member
8. António dos Santos “55” – Member
9. Ana da Conceição Ribeiro – Member

Finally, we invite other women leaders and women’s organizations to support Maria Lurdes Martins de Sousa Bessa, along with Maria Rosa da Câmara “Bi Soi” and Ana da Conceição Ribeiro. We hope they will work together and with civil society to benefit Timor-Leste, especially on women’s issues and security sector issues. We would also love to see the women of Parliament Committee B engage the people, and their on-the-ground experiences, to inform the committee’s knowledge of the security sector.
