*Updated infographic with the numbers of AKKAR and the numbers of candidates in Lebanon .(June 2 2016)
I am pleased to share with you , the beautiful Info graphic Map that was posted on NCLW Facebook page. NCLW clarifies that this Map is indicative, and still need to add to it the results of Akkar. The aim of this map is to help visualise and understand the trends related to women participation in local governance (MUNICIPAL COUNCILS) and have a pre-look at the results while waiting for the official data on the number of winning women by the Ministry of Interior.
preliminary results show that in 2016, 599 women won in the Municipal Elections, whereas in 2010 520 women won.
as for candidates the counting shows that in 2016 1342 women were candidate in comparison in 2010: 1080 women were candidate.
the number is small , to compare, but I am sure that many factors might be interesting to analyse to see why women didn’t win more seats.
” As Data is key to lessons, NCLW team has worked on the documents related to the results of Municipal Elections of 2016 published by the Ministry of interior. The NCLW team has counted the number of women who won and the names of the women who didn’t in each Kada’. This basic counting is based on the name of the candidate, whether it is a name for a women or a men. Notice1 : the uncertain names were not counted in the results of 2016!
Notice 2: Akkar Results are not counted in these numbers, NCLW Team is waiting for their release by the ministry of Interior. This Infographic will be updated as soon as NCLW Team count the Akkar women Candidates * (this was done and new info is above)v
Also, and based on CEDAW report , a comparison with the Municipal Elections of 2010 numbers is possible. NCLW Social Media Team is happy to share with you this in house created Infographic! while waiting for the official results , Congrats to Each Women who Won a Seat in a Municipality!”
