The trouble is that the MEDIA is highlighting this.  They have pulled 
out 2 issues to focus on:
1) recommendation that political parties offer a gender-balanced slate 
of candidates
2) recommendation that electronic voting be used for all Irish 
elections  (they didn't mention the VVAT; the reporters probably just 
skimmed the executive summary)

Naturally the media wants to create controversy to drive up 

If we don't counter it in some way it leaves the recommendation
