Seats For the Boys

The Portuguese Labour Party (PTP) warned last week that the PSD/M regional list comprises of an overwhelming majority of men.

Raquel Coelho considers it necessary to implement the law of parity in Regional Elections to “combat the machismo in force in regional politics.”

It is so obvious that “it’s seats for the boys” as the party leadership and first five seats are reserved only for the men of the party, and that the part also represents a retreat for Mayors coming to the end of their terms in office!

However, according to the candidate list, out of the 34 candidates, ten are women.
