Gender parity to be maintained through Electoral process

Politics

With the intention of “guaranteeing” gender parity in the nominations of political parties during the Panamanian electoral process, the Electoral Tribunal repealed the articles of Decree No. 19 of April of this year .

This was reported by the Electoral Tribunal, which reported that the plenum of the magistrates issued Decree No. 27 of May 11, 2018 to regulate gender parity.

From now on, “if a party in its internal processes chooses only main candidates, those who are chosen as alternates in agreement with the collective, must be a person of different gender of the principal.”

It was also established that “if a party decides to apply for full payrolls (principal and alternate), the members of each payroll must be of a different gender”.

The Electoral Tribunal stressed that the payrolls will be “rejected outright” if the Panamanian political parties do not comply with the “precepts of gender parity”.

“The rule exempts payrolls for the presidential candidacy, because the main candidate is the one who appoints his partner or fellow formula,” the Electoral Tribunal recalled.

Likewise, payroll is exempted by free application because articles No. 301 and No. 303 of the Electoral Code only refer to political parties.
