Green Party MP Golriz Ghahraman has revealed she has multiple sclerosis.

Greens MP Golriz Ghahraman has revealed she is living with multiple sclerosis.

The former-United Nations lawyer made the announcement on Three’s The Project on Wednesday night.

On Twitter on Wednesday evening, Ghahraman said it was the first time she had spoken publicly about her having the disease.

“I’ve learned so much about community, equality and access to care. Mostly, it showed me how strong and capable the MS and broader disability community really are – and the importance of our right to representation,” she wrote.

Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is a disease marked by the body’s immune system eating away at the protective covering of nerves.

It can cause symptoms including vision loss, pain, impaired coordination and fatigue.

Treatment can help, but there is no cure for the disease.

Ghahraman wrote on Twitter in a separate post Wednesday evening that her diagnosis has been one of the “biggest challenges and incredible learning opportunities as an MP”.
