NGOs will not support the bill prepared by the parliamentary majority regarding the quotation

Non-governmental organizations will not support the bill prepared by the parliamentary majority regarding gender quotas. In their opinion, the initiative of the ruling team can not change the picture because it speaks that not every second in the party list, but each third should be of different sex.

The draft law submitted by the NGOs, which was passed in the first hearing, implied proportional list of the elections, according to which every second on the list should be a woman

"The initiative was not supported by the Parliament and once again it was confirmed that women"s political participation and equality are not supported by the Parliament today," said Ida Bakhtidze, coordinator of the project "European Women for the Common Future".
