Quick Glance: Harris's Bold Abortion Stance May Impact 2024 Election After Biden's Exit
  • Vice President Kamala Harris's candid stance on abortion might shift the national conversation on women’s health, following Biden’s decision not to seek re-election, experts say.

  • If Harris becomes the Democratic nominee for president, experts expect her to heavily emphasize the link between abortion rights and women’s healthcare.

  • While Biden did not mention 'abortion' in his recent State of the Union address, Harris has made the importance of access to abortion healthcare prominent.

  • The issue of abortion received minimal attention at the recent Republican National Convention, with the platform no longer calling for a federal abortion ban.

Quick Glance: Bangladesh Dramatically Reduces Quota System
  • The Supreme Court of Bangladesh has decided to drastically reduce the number of government jobs reserved for war veterans and their descendants, following violent student protests that resulted in over 100 deaths.

  • The court ruling reduces quotas for various groups and abolishes quotas for women and individuals from specific districts. Overall, the ruling shrinks the number of reserved jobs from 56 to 7 percent, opening up more civil service jobs to university students.

  • Protests erupted after the quota system was abolished in 2018 and reinstated this year. The escalation of violence led to the government imposing a curfew and deploying the military to quell the protests.

  • The quota system was introduced by Sheikh Mujibur Rahman, the founding leader of Bangladesh, and later expanded. Students demanded that government positions should be mainly filled based on merit, leading to the court's decision to drastically reduce the quota system.
