Her Voice Her Choice : Women in the 2013 Constituent Assembly Elections
PDF File Size: 39.22 MB | Download   
The publication reviews the trend in the nomination of women as candidates over time and finds that while great disparity exists between men and women in securing political party nominations, the affirmative action incorporated into the IC has led to the sudden increase in women’s representation. The findings also indicate that while greater numbers of women are gaining seats through the PR system, they are greatly disadvantaged when it comes to the directly-elected FPTP seats; this is due in large part to their low levels of representation within political party structures;the societal and family barriers they face in running for public office; and the often limited financial resources to put together a strong and winning campaign. As voters, women are registering and taking part in elections in large numbers, however, women’s registration figures are not uniform across the country. In some parts of the country,women are registering in far lower numbers than their male counterparts; to address this issue, electoral stakeholders including the ECN need to develop more targeted voter registration initiatives to facilitate the registration of women in these areas and communities. Finally, the document also reviews women as administrators, those taking part in the organisation and management of the election event. The section on women as administrators reviews the role of women at the ECN, the participation of women on Election Day, and the policies the ECN is putting in place to enhance the role of women throughout the electoral cycle including within the Commission. Finally, the document concludes with recommendations on enhancing women’s participation in the electoral process.
