The Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Thomas Tayebwa has urged delegates attending the 146th Inter-Parliamentary Union General Assembly in Bahrain to resist global pressures and trends that can take over their cultures and beliefs.
The Inter-Parliamentary Union is the global organization of national parliaments that seeks to empower parliamentarians to promote peace, democracy, and sustainable development.
Tayebwa urged the Parliaments to review and strengthen laws and policies to protect minority rights and prevent discrimination and establish institutions to protect the rights of minorities.
He however appealed to them to vehemently reject acts of homosexuality that are in total conflict with their communities. END.
