Rome, January 31 - The Lazio regional
administrative court in a ruling Thursday said the Radical
party's candidates should be allowed to run for regional
elections despite an earlier ruling by the Rome appeals court to
bar the party's candidates.
The appeals court had earlier ruled that the Radical party
could not run its candidates because the party, in having more
women than men on its list, violated equal opportunity rules.
The appeals court did not change its views even after one
of the women on the list stepped down, bringing the sexes back
into parity because the decision was considered too late.
Lawyers for the Radical party presented their appeal to the
Lazio regional administrative court two days ago.
In a statement shortly after the administrative court
ruling Thursday, Giuseppe Rossodivita, the Radicals' candidate
for Lazio governor, said: "This wasn't a victory just for us,
but it was a victory also for democracy, for women and for those
laws which aim to guarantee the place of women in (public)
institutions".
