Quotas and Specialization seats
A participant is in favor of both regional and gender quotas. All participants agreed that having a quota for under-represented groups like Trans people, LGBT+ groups is a good idea. Participants suggested that the quota criteria could be updated at each election round to take into account the diversity in the movement at the moment of elections.
A participant suggested that the specialization should be based on the knowledge of the candidate of a specific region or community. For example, a candidate who has the best understanding of the Africa community and its needs.
Support for candidates
A participant suggested that to give all the necessary support like coaching, budget for candidates and particularly for those from under-represented groups.
