Quota of 40% in the Electoral Code passed on the session num.75 of the Parliament of Republic of Macedonia on 09.11.2015
Article 21
In Article 64 paragraph (5) is amended as follows:
“(5) The submitted list of candidates for members of Parliament from the of paragraph (2) of this Article for members of the municipal council and the City of Skopje referred to in paragraph (3) of this article, at least 40% of the candidates belong to the underrepresented sex namely: on every third place at least one will be reserved for the less represented gender and additionally will be add one position for underrepresented sex on each ten places.
That’s means that we kept the position from the previous Electoral code and get two more obligatory women from every list as a candidate.
