Gender representation in the Parliamentary Assembly

Amendment No. 2 | Doc. 15366 | 26 September 2021

Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination
2021 - Fourth part-session
In the draft resolution, paragraph 8.1, replace, everywhere they appear, the words "shall have a minimum of [N1] members of the under-represented sex, including [N2] representative(s) of the under-represented sex" with the following words:

"shall have a minimum of [N1] women and [N1] men, including at least [N2] woman(women) and [N2] man(men) as representatives".

(The numbers [N1] and [N2] shall be the same as the numbers in the respective sub-paragraphs of paragraph 8.1 of the draft resolution.)

Explanatory note

All numbers remain unchanged as compared with paragraph 8.1 of the draft resolution. However, the wording is simplified to avoid the term "the under-represented sex".
