Local elections 2021, review of candidate lists for mayors and selected representatives from gender aspect

The gender analysis of the candidate lists for mayors and the results of the regular local elections of RNM in 2021 provides an overview of the structure and representation of women and men on the candidate lists submitted by parties or citizens, and confirmed by the State Election Commission, on the one hand, and the structure of the elected office after the election, on the other hand. Thereby, this analysis puts emphasis primarily on the position of women candidates and elected mayors, given the particularly unfavorable position of women when it comes to the election of mayors of municipalities.
