The saints are coming

Turkey ranks 105, out of 115 countries, regarding gender-equality. When the parties presented their candidates, there will be not more than 40 women elected in the next parliament.
Which is less than 10%. Compare this with most European countries, Turkey doesn't take the female population that seriously.
Or can we call this culture relativism?
At least I expected more of the CHP.
Also, a lot of candidates run for parliament, avoiding prosecution...
Please explain the logic behind this. So, when elected you can commit all kind of crimes.. Yes, the good old boys club of Turkey are...Saints...maybe for their mothers.
The saints are coming: how long now?
