Equal opportunity principle and regional electoral legislation. From the Calabrian Council a deliberate, sought and «voted» omission. In Calabria the list reserve and the double preference of gender do not have citizenship
Keywords: regional election in Calabria, double gender preference, Constitutional Court.
This contribution aims to analyze the recent electoral round held in
Calabria for the election of the Regional Council and of the President of
Calabrian Government. In the light of the constitutional jurisprudence for
the (dutiful) promotion of equal opportunities between women and men in
the access to the elective positions, as well as the recent State Law 20/2016,
which provides for the adoption of specific measures in this regard, the
constitutionality of the Calabrian electoral law is doubted because it has not
been adapted to the State principle law.
