Pre Election Overview

Participation of Women in 2016 Local Elections in Bosnia


and Herzegovina
23 September 2016
1. Introduction
Despite the existence of a comprehensive legislative and institutional
framework for promoting gender equality, women in Bosnia and Herzegovina
(BiH) continue to face discrimination in all spheres of life. In particular, this
gap between policy and practice means women are dramatically
underrepresented in the executive and legislative branches at all levels of
government. Despite making up 42% of the candidates during the 2014
General Elections, female delegates comprise less than 20% of the legislative
membership across BiH (occupying between 15 and 30 percent of the seats
at state and entity levels). Only two of nine members of the state-level
Council of Ministers are women. The statistics are even worse at the local
level, where only five out of 143 mayors are women, and it is possible that
this number will diminish further in the 2016 local elections.
This overview presents statistical information concerning the participation of
women in the 2016 local elections in BiH. It analyses the candidate lists and
provides an overview of the number and percentage of women candidates for
mayoral positions and leaders of the candidate lists (including independent
candidates). It also examines the number of women presidents of political
parties, although these are not elected as part of the October 2016 polling.
The paper includes a brief statistical comparison with the 2012 local elections
in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Lastly, this overview assesses the level of
representation of women in the 2016 local elections and the extent to which
legal obligations are respected.
The OSCE Mission to BiH is deeply concerned that women in BiH are underrepresented in executive and legislative structures and largely excluded from
the decision-making process. Patriarchal attitudes, the prevalence of
stereotypes and the entrenchment of wider gender-based cultural norms
maintain gender inequality and hinder the movement from equality of rights
to equality of results. BiH authorities must adhere to the countrys
international and domestic commitments and ensure that women are fairly
represented and equally included in political decision-making at all levels.
However, political parties (being among the most influential actors in BiH)
must also go beyond merely technically complying with legal obligations.
They must enact internal policies and measures that both ensure a sustained
numerical increase in womens political representation, including at top party
levels, and allow for the greater inclusion of women in party decision-making
processes.
2. OSCE, Elections and Gender

Founded on the principle that democratic elections form the basis for
legitimate government, the OSCEs Office for Democratic Institutions and
Human Rights (ODIHR) observes elections, reviews legislation and advises
governments on how to develop and sustain democratic institutions.
Assessments are conducted on the extent to which elections respect
fundamental freedoms and are characterized by equality, universality,
political pluralism, confidence, transparency and accountability.
Currently the OSCE Mission to BiH advises the Central Election Commission
(CEC) on legislative issues and observes its proceedings. Together with the
countrys Parliamentary Assembly, it organizes expert debates on electoral
legislation. The Mission also supports non-governmental organizations to
raise awareness of the importance of equal representation of women in
political life and helps them build up networks that strengthen their
participation. However, while these efforts provide nuanced and invaluable
support to these organizations, they are evidently having a limited effect in
terms of the number of women elected to office. While the normative shifts
relating to equal gender representation must continue to be widely promoted,
more immediate obstacles must also be tackled at the institutional and party
level.
The OSCE Mission to BiH Gender Unit was established in 2014 within the
Human Dimension Department and was tasked with providing assistance to
BiH in promotion of gender equality, as well as mainstreaming gender
perspectives into the Missions programmatic activities. In the beginning of
2016 the Gender Unit was moved to Office of the Head of Mission, as part of
the Policy and Planning Section, thus giving the Unit the possibility to
influence planning and programming at the level of the whole Mission. The
Gender Unit extensively cooperates with the BiH Gender Equality Agency, the
entity Gender Centres and Gender Commissions at all levels of government.
Main points of engagement include work on gender based violence,
implementation of UNSCR 1325 and gender mainstreaming of Mission
programmatic activities.
The Mission is currently implementing its second Gender Action Plan, for the
period of 2016-2018. This document seeks to improve mainstreaming as well
as reporting procedures and to establish the Missions priorities for the 20162018 period in order to promote gender equality and gender mainstreaming
within the organization.
3. Obligations and commitments in BiH
The BiH Election Law and BiH Law on Gender Equality prescribe the equal
participation and division of responsibilities between women and men in
public life and in the decision-making process. 1 The BiH Election Law requires
that every candidate list shall include and equally represent candidates of
male and female gender, with a minimum of 40% of each.2

2 Retrieved from https://www.izbori.ba/Documents/documents/English/Laws/BIHElectionlaw.pdf 22.09.2016

In addition to the stated legal obligations, eight political parties have signed a
pledge together with the Gender Equality Agency of Bosnia and Herzegovina
('Gender Equality Pledge for Political Parties' 3), which was developed with the
support of the OSCE Mission to BiH, to:
1) Fully respect the BiH Law on Gender Equality and to ensure adherence
to legally defined levels of womens participation in decision-making
bodies;
2) Equally promote male and female candidates and to provide all with
equal access to campaigning tools, media and financial assistance, in
order to ensure the fair treatment of party members running for office.
Under the Election Law of BiH, CEC rejects any candidate lists for municipal
and city-level legislatures that do not meet the 40% gender representation
threshold. This has been successfully enforced for the 2016 local elections,
and there are even guidelines on evenly distributing male and female
candidates on party lists. Crucially, however, the Election Law does not
govern the gender composition of party nominations for independent
candidates, mayoral candidates, or party list leaders. This is surely a major
contributing factor to the underrepresentation of women at the top levels of
political party structures.
4. Statistics4
The statistics for womens representation in the 2016 local elections are as
follows:
Mayoral Candidate Representation5
2016 - 417 candidates for mayor of whom 26 are women, representing
6.2%, 3 independent candidates6
2012 - 549 candidates for mayor of whom 39 were women 7, representing
7.1%
o There has been a decrease of 132 candidates for mayor (24%) and 13
women candidates less than in 2012 (a 33.3% decrease in real terms).
Leaders of Candidate Lists Representation
2016 - Out of 2,105 valid candidate lists, 238 lists 8 have women as the
leaders of the list, which comprises 11.3%. Brko District has one woman
as a list leader out of 38 lists for the Assembly

Municipal Coverage Representation


2016 Out of 141 municipalities and cities holding elections, women are
running as mayoral candidates in 24, covering 17%
2012 Out of 140 municipalities and cities holding elections, women were
running as mayoral candidates in 309, covering 21.4%
Entity Coverage Representation
2016 - Women are running for mayoral positions in 15 municipalities in
the Federation of BiH (FBiH) and in 9 municipalities in Republika Srpska
(RS).
2012 - Women were candidates in 19 municipalities in FBiH and in 11
municipalities in RS.
Independent Candidates
Among 171 independent candidates for city/municipal assembly there are
34 women, or 19.9% out of the total.

5. Analysis and Recommendations


It is evident that women remain numerically underrepresented in legislatures
at all levels in BiH. However, some success has been achieved in recent years
through amendments to legislation. The enforcement of the 40% minimum
quota for male and female candidates on all candidates lists is noteworthy
both for the impact that effective legislation can have and for BiH authorities
willingness and ability to implement it.
However, there remain significant discrepancies between the numbers of
women on candidates lists and the number of female representatives in
legislatures. This is likely partly caused by wider social norms (such as the
prevalence of patriarchal values and a masculine political culture). Yet there
are also barriers within many parties to more women taking public office.
Although parties are forced to comply with the 40% threshold, the OSCE
Mission is aware of numerous instances of parties pressuring or persuading
successful female candidates on their lists to forego their seats in favour of
other party members.
Most parties also show a broader lack of effort to place women in prominent
political positions. The fact that only 6.2% of mayoral candidates and 11.3%
of candidates list leaders in 2016 are women demonstrates that parties are
not generally committed to promoting equal opportunities for their male and
female members when not obliged by law; indeed, the fact that there are
33% fewer female candidates for mayoral office than in 2012 suggests that
the situation is deteriorating.
Within most political parties, women are drastically less likely to hold high
office or be meaningfully involved in policy-making. Of the 103 registered
parties in BiH in 2016, only five (4.9%) have female party presidents. This is
9 Ibid, 14.09.2016

particularly worrying as political parties (especially the largest ten or so)


dominate the political landscape of almost every political unit of the country
and are often the primary political actors.
Among independent candidates for city and municipal councils, 20% are
women. Independent candidacies are not held in practice to the same 40%
list quota, and there is a tendency for male candidates to take precedence on
independent candidate lists. It could also indicate that women are
comparatively disadvantaged in terms of the financial resources and support
systems needed to run independently for public office.

Recommendations
It is therefore apparent that parties must make a more concerted effort to
reform internal mechanisms, policies and norms concerning the selection of
and support given to female candidates Parties should recognize the value of
improving gender representation and the unique agency that parties
themselves have in doing so, even where they are not legally obliged to take
further action. The OSCE Mission is ready to assist parties in this process,
building on its successful partnerships and past achievements.
The OSCE Mission therefore calls on all parties to conduct internal gender
audits to assess the strengths and weaknesses of the partys approach to
gender equality issues and provide concrete next steps. The Mission is
committed to continuing assisting them in this process (having already begun
gender audits for several larger parties) and will offer further assistance in
the resulting capacity-building exercises.
It needs to be noted that 40 % quota is not applied to the independent
candidate lists which creates discrepancy in implementation of legislation
and therefore requires greater attention from the CEC and other electoral
authorities to ensure that women are given fair opportunities when running
for office.
The international community should present a more vocal and united front in
advocating for improvements to gender representation at all political levels in
BiH. This issue should be raised as a priority at each opportunity, particularly
when meeting with party leaders, senior political figures and electoral
officials.

Annex VI: Gender Equality Pledge for Political Parties


We, the leaders of political parties signed below, hereby demonstrate our commitment to gender
equality. We fully acknowledge the need for, and value of, equal participation of women and men
in public and political life. As political leaders recognizing gender equality as a cornerstone of
democracy, we pledge the following:
1. To fully respect the BiH Law on Gender Equality and to ensure adherence to legally defined
levels of womens participation in decision making bodies, including, but not limited to,
executive structures and legislative and representatives bodies.
2. To equally promote men and women candidates and to provide all with equal access to
campaigning tools, media and financial assistance, in order to ensure fair treatment of party
members running for office.
3. To actively advocate for gender equality issues, demonstrating genuine commitment and
serious intentions towards gender mainstreaming and progressing towards gender equality.
4. To not consider women politicians solely responsible for promoting gender equality issues,
recognizing the important role men play in progressing towards gender equality.
5. To include topics of gender equality in political party programmes, internal documents and
trainings as a means to enhance understanding of the importance of gender equality issues among
party members.
6. To not tolerate sexist remarks, hate speech or any form of discrimination by, or directed
towards, party members, demonstrating commitment to principles of non-discrimination.
7. To welcome co-operation with gender institutional mechanisms, NGOs, media and citizens as
partners in promoting gender equality.
Recognizing the need for further investment in the implementation of public policies in the area
of gender equality; that social development can have a different impact on women and men; and
that women face specific forms of gender-based discrimination, we further pledge the following:
8. To support equality and equal opportunities for men and women, including those belonging to
vulnerable groups, in the labour market, recognizing Bosnia and Herzegovinas low rate of
participation of men, and especially women, in the labour market.
9. To support the development and implementation of policies where women receive proper
maternity leave benefits and to support policies that increase the quantity and quality of facilities
for Preschool and Early Childhood Education.
10. To support programmes and policies that reconcile professional and private life for women
and men.
11. To provide support to safe houses, SOS helplines and multi-disciplinary teams in efforts to
protect victims of domestic violence in BiH the vast majority of whom are women.
12. To ensure policies focusing on social inclusion take into consideration the special needs of
Roma women, women with disabilities, women from rural areas, migrant women, women victims
of war and internally displaced women, recognizing the multiple forms of social exclusion
women face in BiH.
