Meral Ece appointed to Equality and Human Rights Commission

Congratulations to Cllr Meral Ece (Islington) on her appointment as a commissioner of the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC). Operation Black Vote reports:

A race advisor to Lib Dem leader Nick Clegg, Ece has her hands full having been handed special responsibility for race, gender and religion on the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC).

Speaking to OBV Blog, Ece said: “I’m really happy to be appointed. It’s a great opportunity and challenge. It’s important to put party politics aside and work to have a strong, healthy organisation.

“We need a strong regulatory body, to work towards a society that is equal and fair.”

There were around 600 applications for the board and I believe this is the first time since Navnit Dholakia (now a Lib Dem peer) served on the Commission for Racial Equality (CRE) that a Liberal Democrat has held a comparable post.

There is more on the EHRC’s website here.

Congratulations Meral.

By the way, Meral is also a blogger and you can read her blog is here.
