Party selection processes
Selection of a candidate for office is ultimately decided by the central power of a political party. In an attempt to establish uniformity in the selection process, clear guidelines have been set up to control both selection criteria and the process itself. Many parties argue that this standardisation of procedure gives women an equal chance of qualifying for selection; however, such uniformity has been criticised for the importance given to essentially male characteristics.
Those wanting to become parliamentary candidates ****often have to undergo a long political apprenticeship or political volunteer work before they have a good chance of being selected****. This can prove a problem for many women, who due to constraints of family, have less time available for such party work. In many selection committees (especially those from a majoritarian electoral system), a "successful" candidate is often seen to be a white professional male, and the selectors might feel obliged in selecting such a "safe" candidate over a female one. In addition, nearly all political parties are headed by male politicians who are the party's role model; it is likely therefore that masculine selection criteria will dominate decisions. Table 5 shows the likelihood of both men and women becoming both candidates and M.P.s: in no country do women have a greater chance of either than men. The Council of Europe (1996:31) recommends that such selection procedures are reformed to make them gender neutral.
