Municipalities Elections and the Participation of Youth and Women
      Ramzi Odah, Phd, Ala Lahloh, MA.,
Abstract: Young people under 30 years of age represent about one third of the population, while the percentage is close to half among women, but empirical evidence indicates that the representation and participation rates of these two groups are low. Comparative data indicate that there is a sharp decline in the participation of youth and women in the municipal elections in 2017 compared to the elections in 2012; that there are several reasons behind this decline, including the high rates of consensus lists, in addition to the low percentage of party lists, and the low participation rates in voting.
