The Opposition leader has given his full support to assist women to become members of Parliament.

Mr Kalsakau made this comment when a group of the woman leaders under the Vanuatu Society Influencing Network made a petition to him yersterday afternoon.

This is to support the long time cry of woman in the country, especially to have 50/50 percent gender equality in Vanuatu's parliament.

Dr Andrina Thomas a member of the network says a similar appeal was given to the government since last year but the until now the government is still turning a blind eye, enabling them to approach the leader of Opposition.

Mr Kalsakau says women in Vanuatu need to choose right woman leaders to drive the country forward.
