Additional information

The electoral law was amended in 2013, requiring that candidate lists include equal numbers of men and women. This provision will be applied from the next legislative election onwards. The 2013 Law on Political Party and Electoral Campaign Funding provides that 20 per cent of the public funding allocated to political parties be distributed in proportion to the number of women elected in the previous legislative elections, and that 10 per cent of the public funding be distributed in proportion to the number of women elected from each political party in the previous local elections.
