Proportion of women in local politics slightly increases

The proportion of women in local politics has slightly increased after the recent communal elections, from 26 to 27 percent, according to the analysis released by Forum 50 %, which promotes the equal representation of women in politics. The Senate will remain largely male-dominated. Eight women are running in the second round of Senate elections next weekend, with two standing a chance of being elected.
