Women from the Peoples National Congress (PNC) party have come out to thank the Prime Minister Peter O’Neill for his concern in seriously addressing the issue of women representation in the 10th National Parliament.

 
PNC Party women who had gathered in Port Moresby, said they supported the Prime Minister in his idea of having one male governor and one female governor but elected by everyone in each province and the implication that it will have from the current parliament of 111 members of Parliament to 133.

 
“We, the party women, are proud of our party leader and prime minister, who is open-minded about women’s role in the development of Papua New Guinea,” said Kathy Tom, a member of the ruling party.

 
“PNC will create history in the world when it takes a bold step to pass law to ensure with certainty the representation of women from the provinces through the women who would be elected as Governors.”

 
The group said they understand that there is a lot of work to be done but they are ready and willing to work with the prime minister to make this a reality before the next General Election in 2022.
