Valentina Bunjaku-Rexhepi has been elected to head the Assembly of Gjilan. This is the first time that this post has been held by a woman within this Municipality.
KWN representatives visited Mrs. Bunjaku-Rexhepi on 27 Jan., to congratulate her.
“Mostly, I have been elected by women, and I will commit to furthering gender equality in our Municipality,” she said.
A loud advocate for women’s rights not just in the Assembly, but also outside, she received the most votes as a candidate in Gjilan, particularly from women.
Born in 1978 in Gjilan, Valentina Bunjaku-Rexhep, professor of Mathematics, is also involved in activities outside politics. She is President of the women’s football club “Drita”. She feels honoured to serve as the head of the Assembly. She feels even prouder that she gained the trust of the majority of councillors from other political parties.
