Three out of the elderly female candidates have received the highest number of votes in their communities

As a result of the local elections held on February 17, the number of women community leaders in Armenia has not changed. The reason is obvious: in one of the 20 communities there was no female candidate for the post of head.


It should be reminded that on Sunday local elections were held in 24 communities of Armenia, 14 of which were regular and 10 were snap elections. Out of the communities, 20 elected the head of the community and 4  –  members of the council of elders.


Among these four communities there were only 3 female candidates running for the Council of Elders in Margara, Getahovit and Ijevan. The total number of female candidates for the Council of Elders was five, three of them were elected, with the highest number of votes received in their communities.


The existing council of the Margara community of Armavir region had seven members, three of them women. There were 13 candidates for the Council of Elders, three of whom were women. There will be two women in the newly elected council. By the way, the selected women are the ones who have received the largest number of votes.


The current council of the village of Getahovit, Tavush province, had 6 members, including women. Let us remind you that there were 7 candidates running for six seats, including one woman. Anya Khachatryan is non-party. As a result of voting, she received the highest number of votes.


The current city council of Tavush province, Ijevan, had 12 members, including women. There were 33 candidates running for 12 seats, one of which was a woman. Tatevik Minasyan is non-party, Social Worker of “Bridge of Hope” NGO. Here 37 citizens voted for Tatevik from 8263 voters. She is the candidate with the least number of votes, so she will not be included in the Council of Elders.


Analyzing the results of the elections, it can be stated that the previously disclosed pattern was maintained when female candidates were defeated by men in high competition in urban or large communities. In smaller communities, where women are more recognizable, they tend to succeed when they are nominated.


As a result of the February 17 elections, the total number of female members of the council has not changed.
