Shimla, April 10- Women May Outshine Men in Shimla MC Polls
Women candidates may outperform their male counterparts in the upcoming Shimla MC polls, as the election sees an increase in female candidates. There is disagreement within both parties over the sudden change in the roster, as many aspiring candidates are now unlikely to be able to run due to unreserved wards becoming reserved. The likelihood of a woman candidate being selected in the reserved wards is higher due to the greater public exposure of female candidates.
In the last election, the unreserved wards of Ruldubhatta, Kaithu, Tutu, Majyath, Kachchighati, Tutikandi, Rambazar, Lower Bazar, Sanjauli Chowk, Lower Dhali, Malyana, Pantaghati, Kasumpti, and New Shimla were reserved for women. However, many male candidates who had been preparing and aspiring to run for years according to the previous roster were disappointed with the change.
