NEWS BRIEFS

ANO for women

THE RULING coalition party the New Citizen's Alliance (ANO) has decided that it will require that one third of all its candidates in municipal, regional, and national elections be women.

ANO has consistently called for the introduction of quotas that would help Slovak women get into top politics. At a meeting on February 14, the party decided that it would lead by example.

In Slovakia, it is still uncommon for women to hold top positions. In parliament 19 percent of MPs are women and the Slovak cabinet does not have a single female member, the Slovak daily SME wrote.
