The current legislation does not provide for a mandatory legislated candidate quota, but instead provides a financial incentive for parties to increase the number of women candidates on the list. Parties that nominate at least 30 % women in every ten of the candidates on the list receive additional 30 % of the public funding. The increased amount of public funding came into force following the 2014 local self-government elections. The legislation was first introduced in late 2011 in the run-up to the 2012 parliamentary elections, and provided a lower financial incentive (an additional 10 per cent in public funding) for parties which included at least 20 per cent women in every group of ten candidates on their lists.
