The National, Thursday 16th August 2012
I WOULD like to congratulate Julie Soso for winning the Eastern Highlands provincial seat.
I also take this opportunity to congratulate Delilah Gore for winning Sohe open and Loujaya Toni for winning Lae open.
Their wins have corrected many wrong perceptions about our country.
They have shown PNG and the world that we are moving forward and that our women are not second-class but equal partners to their male counterparts.
May God bless Eastern Highlands as the first province to elect a woman governor.
Thanks must also go to Dame Carol Kidu, Janet Sapias, Margaret Parua and other great women of this country for fighting for women’s rights.
Their cries have touched many and, as a result, we have three new women MPs in parliament.
