PERMANENT secretary of the Ministry of Home Affairs Mr George Palua highlighted that women’s leadership and political participation is not an isolated matter.
“On the contrary it is an issue that affects our society as whole, where men and women, young and elders should work together.”
He said this matter needs collaboration amongst public and private institutions and civil society.
Palua said the recent school and essay completion creativity is a fine example of collaboration involving the Solomon Islands Electrical Commission (SIEC), the Ministry of Education and Human Resources Development (MEHRD), the Ministry of Women, Youth, Children and Family Affairs (MWYCFA), Media Association of Solomon Islands (MASI) and civil society representation who have contributed to make it successful.
“This continued collaboration has set an example for all citizens to support women to participate in the political arena,” he said.
