Project description

With the changes to the electoral law the policymakers tried to obtain an equal presence of men and women among the candidates for the municipal-, provincial- and district councils. The questions arises to what extent this obliged parity was also transformed in the presence of both sexes in the elected councils, as well as in the executives of these boards.
