The People’s Alliance Party says it sees the result of an Australian National University research as a push for its women members who aspire to contest the 2014 Solomon Islands National Elections later this year.
ANU’s researcher Terrance Wood has said his research has found it is unlikely women candidates contesting the Elections will be successful.
The People’s Alliance Party in its final meeting at the weekend resolved in a positive manner Professor Wood’s findings.
The PAP says it is a call for women aspiring to contest the 2014 National Elections to work harder because to be candidates is neither fun or a joke and runner-up getter results will not be good enough stories.
The party laments the years when its woman candidate, Mrs Hilda Kari held the North-East-Central Guadalcanal seat for three consecutive terms.
The meeting said if she was able to win the elections, why not other women.
The People’s Alliance Party contemplates fielding up to 10 women candidates in the 2014 National Elections.
