The Holy Episcopal Synod has accepted the report of the commission appointed by the Holy Synod to report to the Holy Synod regarding the possibilities of granting voting right to women in Malankara Orthodox Church. The report will be available for publication only after the Rules Committe makes specific constitutional changes in this regard. The commission, Metropolitan Yuhanon Mar Militos in his 11 page report has given, reasons for granting voting right to women in parish assembly on the basis of the teachings and approach of Jesus Christ, the Biblical passages, the opinion of the father of the Church, theological issues, position of other Orthodox Churches of the world, the suggestion of the Supreme court in its order in 1995 verdict on Church case, articles of human rights, practical issues etc. Through this, the Church will be addressing a major issue that has been in the Church for a long time and will be a milestone in the history of the Church. Though this will make the size of the parish general body larger, it will not add any number to parish managing committee, diocesan council, Malankara Association or Association Managing Committee.
