Political parties not respecting Law on Gender Equality

Kosovo Democratic Institute (KDI) warned that the Law on Gender Equality is not being respected by political parties running in 6 October elections when it comes to equal representation of women in their tickets.

"From what we’ve seen so far, majority of the parties have not incorporated 50/50 ratio with the vast majority of them applying the 30% quota which is a requirement by the Law on General Elections. The Law on Gender Equality meanwhile stipulates the two genders have to be equally represented,” said KDI’s Blerta Aliu said.
