Esther Jailosi Jolobala
Marietou Dieng, the Honorable Vice-President, has a degree in Microbiology-Biosafety and project management. She is a biological engineer who works in biomedical research on a national and worldwide scale.
She is a Member of Parliament elected to the 14th legislature (2022-2027), the 5th Vice-President of the REWMI liberal party (since 2020), the Vice-President of the National Assembly’s Committee on Health, Population, Social Affairs, and National Solidarity, and a member of the Sustainable Development Commission, as well as the Foreign Affairs, Senegalese Abroad, and African Integration Commission.
She was also a member of the Rewmi party’s Committee of Initiatives for Women’s Coordination (2020) and a member of RENEFAL (National Network of Liberal Women), as well as a communication officer. Honorable Marietou Dieng, Senegal’s youngest female party vice president, is surely one of those individuals who recognized early on their calling to fulfill roles in the community that extend beyond the family and social context. The more than twenty years of active dedication she proudly shows in the Senegalese political realm provide insight into her journey and, particularly, the zeal with which she embraced the political world. She has been working for her beliefs and convictions since 2000, and she began her political career with the PDS. From 2004, She maintained her devotion to the MSIS campaign for the liberation of Mr. Idrissa Seck, Prime Minister of Senegal at the time, until today at the REWMI party.
She was a previous head of departmental women’s youth and a member of the national youth office. Departmental women’s coordination is coordinated by the administrative secretary. Member of the IS4 executives’ national
secretariat (in charge of the research commission on young employment and departmental communication).
Honorable Marietou is also a member of the CECAR executives’ national office, in charge of communication and political marketing.
She was quickly identified as a member of the elite in the making, and she enrolled in the most prestigious political training institutions. She was a great strategist, but she was strict on the edges. She had political losses, but she knew how to hold on. She remained and struggled. And, thankfully, she was nominated as her party’s fifth vice president in 2020 and elected as a candidate in the July 2022 legislative elections. Her peers unanimously thank her for her hardships and the principles she knows how to pose and spread within Rewmi.
“Parity is not an end in itself,” said Honorable Vice President Marietou Dieng, “but it remains a very effective way to achieve equal rights.”
