Sažetak

The paper looks into the effectiveness of the application of
preferential quotas for electoral posts and compares the different
quota systems in the EU countries. Starting from the assumption that
political parties in contemporary democracies are major actors in the
representation of women in national parliaments, the author analyses
the (un)favourable conditions for women in candidacy procedures
and some examples of (un)successful quota implementations. The
conclusion is that a successful application of the quotas for women
depends on a set of additional variables such as the quota application
in proportional electoral systems, the entrenchment of the quotas in
women’s movements and their consistent and long- term implementation.
