Note on the distribution of seats according to sex:
Initially, 11 women were elected in the 2016 elections. However, one of them, who is also a member of the European Parliament (EP), decided to keep her EP seat and was replaced by a male candidate of the same party. Consequently, the number of women decreased to 10 before the first session was held on 2 June.
