The National Council of Women congragulates a woman elected to be member of Makira Ulawa Provincial government

General Secretary of the National Council of Women Ella Kauhue says the success of Nesta Marahora in winning the ward 10 seat in the Makira Ulawa Provincial elections is a big step not only for women in the province but in Solomon Islands.

In a congratulatory statement to Mrs Marahora, Ms Kauhue says her victory shows that people of the province are prepared to see women participate in the decision making process and to represent them at the provincial level.

She says this also shows that voters have confidence in a woman to lead them forward in the next four years.

Ms Kauhue says the Council has been working hard to see that women get into provincial and national decision making levels.

"The National women of Council had been working hard to support and promote women to get into both national and provincial levels of decision-making in the country. For Marahora to fulfil that is a big achievement for women in Solomon Islands."
