Origin
2021 - Fourth part-session
In the draft resolution, replace paragraph 9.3 with the following paragraph:

"aspire to parity and alternation between men and women for group chair and vice-chair positions".

Explanatory note

While the idea of promoting balanced gender representation in governing bodies of the political groups is important, group chairs and vice-chairs are elected and not appointed as it is suggested in the current wording of paragraph 9.3.
