For the first time in the history of the Greek Parliament, 20% of MPs will be women.
On the basis of the June 17 election results, the number of women in Parliament rose by 2.7% than that in 2009 to comprise 60 out of 300.
The parliamentary group with the highest percentage (35% and seven women) is Independent Greeks, while that with the lowest (5.56% and one women) is Golden Dawn.
In second place is the Greek Communists Party (33.33% and four women), then Syriza (30.99% and 22 women), Democratic Left (29.41% and five women), New Democracy (13.95% and 18 women) and PASOK (9.09% and three women).
In a statement, the General Secretariat for Equal Rights noted that the presence (one fifth) of women in Parliament is still well below the minimum limit called for (one third) by Greek law.
