Number of female deputies in newly elected councils of large cities increases by 50% - Study

The Eidos Center and the Fama Research Agency surveyed women's representation in local councils in 2010-2020. The project analyzed political trends in urban communities with a population of 100,000.

The press service of Eidos reports.

The main conclusions of 2020 local elections in terms of women's representation in urban communities with a population of over 100,000 inhabitants:

  • Gender quotas have partially worked: the number of female deputies in local councils has increased by almost 50% compared to 2015;
  • Women are placed at the end of each five in the lists of political parties: only 17% of the first numbers are given to female candidates in the party lists;
  • The higher the level of representation, the fewer women: the average share of local election winners in large cities is 31%; in regional councils, 28%; in parliament, 21% of all seats.

Detailed and visualized results of the first part of the study are at the link.
