Partnership to support women's political participation in Papua New Guinea

A Memorandum of Understanding was signed in August 2017 by Dr Alphonse Gelu, Registrar of Political Parties and the Integrity of Political Parties and Candidates Commission, and Professor Michael Wesley, Dean of the Australian National University (ANU) College of Asia and the Pacific, committing both organisations to work together to improve women’s leadership and political participation in Papua New Guinea.

Dr Gelu said he was pleased to be working with the ANU’s State, Society and Governance in Melanesia (SSGM) program to deliver the five-year Women in Leadership Support Program. Dr Gelu noted that this program, along with the Commission’s work to strengthen women’s inclusion in political parties are important because we need senior male leaders to work with women to drive change and address the barriers to greater political participation for women.
