As Walter Veltroni promised, there are many women candidates (about 40 per cent) on the electoral lists of the Partito Democratico (PD) for the national elections to be held in 12-13 April. Veltroni, head of the PD, has confidently announced that the number of women who will be elected to parliament will double. Currently there are 109 women in the chamber of deputies out of a total of 630 members while the senate has 45 women senators out of total of 315 elected members. The PD has women in the top position on its electoral lists in eight constituencies for chamber of deputies and in three in the senate. The women "capoliste" include some veteran politicians such as Rosy Bindi (chamber of deputies) and Emma Bonino (senate), as well as a new generation of young women politicians such as Pina Picierno, 26, and Marianna Madia, 27, both of whom are number one on their electoral lists for the chamber of deputies. Moreover, there are regions where women make up half or almost half of the overall number of candidates on the PD lists for both houses, such as Emilia Romagna where 32 out of 64 candidates are women.
