EQUALITY: All obviously depends on the results of the second round …
So far, the National Assembly was far from a parity model. In 2012, the Palais Bourbon had only 27% of women elected … what was already a “record”. This proportion is expected to increase significantly after the second round of legislative elections scheduled for Sunday.
According to calculations of Lab , there will be at least 83 MPs elected to Parliament. Going a step further in the reflection, the site explains that if all the 245 candidates were elected led the way, “the Assembly [would] then composed of 42.5% women. “A percentage of something close to the” real “parity.
La nouvelle la plus importante de ces législatives c’est possiblement 40% de femmes élues députées. Ca c’est neuf. https://t.co/1GpiXpLPIP

For the government of Edouard Philippe, there are eleven women ministers and eleven eleven men – for now, as several ministers and candidates could lose their job – even if the sovereign ministries remain male-dominated.
