Russian woman in Top 5 of Social Democratic Party

Kyrgyz Social Democratic party held the party congress on Saturday and put together a party list. Bakyt Beshimov, Vice President on Academic Affairs of American University-Central Asia (my Alma Mater), joined this party along with Edil Baisalov, a long-standing activist with liberal views whom I respect a lot, I was hoping that there would be more women in top five. Yet, well, let’s see how things are with the other 95 names. Edil is running the 13th. I am sure that if he makes it to Parliament, there will be some gender sensitivity there. 

I am wondering today whether the token Russian women preferrably under 35 would be in every single party lists, therefore, getting the parties to fulfill the quota criteria.
