Committee Unhappy About Former Governor General’s Comments


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.
