Lending free seats to women unfair

Letters

THE United Nation Development Programme (UNDP) initiatives of putting women into Parliament is violating the election procedures of Papua New Guinea.
I am a man and I am not biased here but I see that lending free seats in Parliament to women is not being just and fair according to democratic principles.
The Parliament is known as the highest lawmaking institution in the country and I know that it is not prohibiting the rights of women to be part of it.
There is already a procedure in place where anyone eager to represent their people in their electorate or provincial level in Parliament can go through by contesting in the national general elections.
Women must prove themselves to their people to be well-intended to represent them in the Parliament just like other elected MPs.
