Gender Accountability and Political Representation in Local Government
The representation of women in the institutions of local government has been facilitated through affirmative action, where one-third of the seats have been reserved for women. This raises issues related to the representation of gender interests and the constraints on such representation. The paper focuses on the complexities of political representation of women's interests. Lack of effective participation, multiplicity of identities, and the absence of the consolidation of gender specific concerns, prevent women's interests from being an issue in their political representation
