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.
