Parliament moves to boost gender equality


The changes also concern the appointment of representatives of local and national communities in these bodies.

The changes clearly define exceptions when the minimum 40% representation of one sex is impossible to secure.

The current law does not define exceptions, so they will be determined based on a decree regulating the criteria for the implementation of the principle of balanced representation of women and men.

The changes, passed in a 54:4 voted, had been drawn up to implement gender equality, which is in line with the constitutional principle of equality before the law.

The latest government analysis of appointments for the period between 19 September 2018 and 31 March 2019 shows that women were less frequently appointed to positions of power than men. This holds true both for management and supervisory boards and for CEO posts.
