The Future Movement parliamentary bloc is preparing to introduce a proposal on the right of Lebanese women to confer nationality to their children, MP Dima Jamali told The Daily Star. Jamali, who is one of only six women in the 128-member Parliament after being newly elected in May, said she considers the nationality question a "human rights issue" and that Future leader Prime Minister-designate Saad Hariri has pushed the bloc to put forward a proposal to reform the law.In August, Progressive Socialist Party MP Hadi Aboul Hosn introduced draft legislation that would give women the same rights as men to confer nationality to their children and husbands, without exception.The Future proposal, Jamali said, does not contain any exceptions based on nationality as in the Bassil proposal. But it would be more limited than the Aboul Hosn proposal, applying only to children, not to husbands, of Lebanese women.
