Governor-General post

Time for a female Governor-General!

Parliament will nominate a new Governor-General this month as Sir Michael Ogio’s term expires after six years.

Polye said gender equity is a major issue in PNG. This country needs a female Governor-General not just to balance gender but to give a fair voice for women in the country.

“It is proven that women perform very well when under pressure and when they come under compromise they continue to stand steadfast on their functions,” stated Polye.

Women eye top posts

On Friday, Sumkar Open MP, Ken Fairweather, urged women to not be afraid to take up the office of the Governor-General.

Fairweather openly admitted to being the most unpopular man in parliament, due to the daring remarks he makes, one of which was the issue he raised in parliament in regards to a woman becoming the Governor-General.
