Equality scheme

Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998 requires the Chief Electoral Officer for NI to have due regard to the need to promote equality of opportunity:

  • between persons of different religious belief, political opinion, racial group, age, marital status or sexual orientation;
  • between men and women generally;
  • between persons with a disability and persons without; and
  • between persons with dependants and persons without.

We are also required to take account of the desirability of promoting good relations between people of different religious beliefs, political opinions or race.
