WOMEN: The state TV broadcaster's news has it that ten percent of the MPs are women. This is typical result for Hungary, although the rate was even lower. What has been striking me, is that during the campaign period the leading female politicians, such as Ibolya Dávid (MDF), Katalin Szili and Ildikó Lendvai (MSZP) are getting better ratings than their male counterparts. The party lists did not reflect this, however, and parties were not including that many women on the top part of their lists. Yet another thing to reflect on – especially when thinking of democracy and the continuous process of democratisation – over the next four years.
