On election night

The Welsh Assembly is the only elected body in the Western world, if not the world, to have a 50/50 split between men and women members.

It's a touch pedantic I know but strictly speaking its the only public elected body to have such a make up. There are a good many directly elected private assemblies (for example workplace panels/committees etc) which are required by their constitutions to have a 50/50 gender split.
