Gender quota helped women to get elected

The percentage of women candidates at the local elections on October 25 and women elected to the regional and city councils increased compared to the past years. This is due to the gender quota in the legislation. Although the quota was not mandatory, the number of women among the candidates for deputies and city mayors increased, said Lyubov Gashkova, international secretary of the Committee of Voters of Ukraine (CVU) in an interview for Sodomsky Glinomesets Magazine.
