17/6/09

Temporary Special Measures Working Committee has expressed disappointment in former Governor General, Sir Nathaniel Waena, for his negative remarks towards the concept of special measures for women. In a statement, the Working Committee says Sir Nathaniel’s departing comments on the special measures for women in parliament being undemocratic has come as a great disappointment. The Committee says there are concrete examples around the Pacific in which affirmative action has been taken using special measures for women.
