Vote for equal representation in Albania
Description: Ten years ago, Albania had only nine women MPs. Gender quota were applied for the first time in the parliamentary elections of 2009 and the number of women MPs increased to 23. However, their representation was only 16%. Four years later, only two more women became part of the Parliament and 46.6% of voters were women and girls. Albania is still far from the European average of 29% women in parliament. Globally, it is ranked at 78th place. A woman in Parliament is one voice more for half of the population. This year, free vote, as a fundamental right, can bring bolder representation. On 25 June vote for equal representation!
