Tbilisi. Transparency International Georgia publishes a blogpost: Gender imbalance in the self-government bodies of the municipalities of Adjara.
“The representation of women in the city councils of Adjara has increased, although, in spite of this, there is a significant gender imbalance in the self-government bodies, especially in the executive organs of the municipalities. Women’s representation is still low in the factions and commissions of the city councils. Only 2 of the 29 factions (both in Batumi) in the region’s self-government bodies are chaired by women. As for commissions, only 4 of the 30 commissions in 6 city councils are chaired by women (in Kobuleti, Khelvachauri, Shuakhevi, and Khulo)”, is noted in the statement.
