HDP releases woman-positive criteria for determining MP candidate lists

Peoples' Democratic Party (HDP) Women's Election Coordinating Body has released its candidate criteria, based on the principle of putting women first, for the upcoming June 7th elections.

The HDP, now in the process of determining its candidate lists for the election of MPs to Turkey's Parliament, has long followed a total gender parity policy. The MP candidates who run in the June election will be half female. No male candidates with a history of harassment, rape or violence against women will be allowed to run. Men with a history of polygamy will also be rejected.
