Loujaya Toni in Action at the PNG Practice Parliament for Women 2012

Yesterday, Papua New Guinea had the honor of welcoming the election of our sixth ever female Member of Parliament, Hon Loujaya Toni – Member for Lae, to the Haus Tambaran.

Toni’s win immediately followed that of Sohe Open’s Delilah Gore the day before. The election of these two women is PNG’s best ever result in terms of female representation in parliament since our first national election in 1977, when three women were elected to parliament.

Here’s a little video footage of Hon Loujaya Toni earlier this year participating in the PNG Practice Parliament for Women:
