Minister for Children, the Elderly and Gender Equality
"One of my most important tasks is to improve the lives of older people and make them more secure. It is also important to close the gaps in care for older people, home-help service and more. I want to tighten regulations to increase gender equality and combat oppression in the name of honour. People with disabilities must be able to participate more fully in society, and in this context the Act concerning Support and Service for Persons with Certain Functional Impairments plays an important role."
