This, as it was agreed that the parties will nominate women to seven out of the 15 governorships to be contested in 2021
Moreover, the TEPJF established that the Congress and local congresses must also ahere to gender parity regulation in public office positions ahead of the 2021 electoral process.
While the regulation won’t guarantee the election of women, it serves to promote the inclusion of women in the nomination process which could lead to the election of more women down the line
