Abstract: The Prime Minister of Malta acknowledged in January of 2014 stated that Malta has not achieved parity between women and men in politics (Dalli, 2014). This is because in 2014, 9 out of the 70 members forming the Maltese parliament (incorporating the speaker), that is 13% of the members were female (European Commission, Justice, 2014a). Schiavone (2013) underlines that Malta ranked lowest among EU27 member states in 2013 where women’s representation in parliament was concerned. In 2014, only Hungary had a worse track record than Malta among the EU 28 (European Commission, Justice, 2014a). Among the 57 OSCE participating States, Malta has the eighth lowest representation of women in parliament (Inter-Parliamentary Union, 2014).
