Gender representation in the Parliamentary Assembly

Amendment No. 5 | Doc. 15366 | 26 September 2021

Committee on Equality and Non-Discrimination
2021 - Fourth part-session
In the draft resolution, after paragraph 9.1, insert the following paragraph:

"establish the principle that, when proposing members of ad hoc committees, their gender breakdown is no less balanced than the composition of the group proposing them or, if this is more favourable to the promotion of gender equality, according to the "one in three" principle;"

Explanatory note

This paragraph complements paragraph 10.2 of the draft resolution, which requires the Bureau to include at least one-third women and one-third men in all ad hoc committees. Political groups should play their part by ensuring they also respect this rule when proposing members of ad hoc committees.
