Jaldo announced that the Legislature will enact a Gender Parity law for Tucumán

The Lieutenant Governor, Osvaldo Jaldo, announced today that the Legislature will enact a Gender Parity bill.

This is an initiative that provides for the formation of the lists of candidates for provincial elective positions with an equal participation of men and women.

As it is a provincial regulation, it will not have an impact on the national elections this year. Therefore, the new regime would make its debut in the 2023 elections.

“We are one of the three provinces that still do not have this law in our electoral system. Promoting equality is a great benefit for the Tucuman society. For this reason, I promised to promote the treatment of the project in the next legislative session,” he said Jaldo.

The lieutenant governor made the announcement after meeting with the Peronist legislator Sara alperovich (We do Tucumán), one of the promoters of this initiative.

The gender parity regime is in force at the national level, where the lists of applicants to the National Congress are composed of 50% by men and 50% by women, in interspersed places.

In Tucumán, however, the “Feminine Quota” law governs, which establishes a minimum participation of 30% of women in the lists of candidates (that is, one applicant for every three places on the ballots).

“This is great news for many women who daily fight for real access to decision-making places, and we know that with this law we strengthen democracy,” said the daughter of Senator José Alperovich after the meeting with the lieutenant governor.

In addition, he stressed that the president of the Legislature “promised to discuss the project in the next session,” for which there is still no confirmed date.
