With all due respect to the sentiments expressed in this newspaper by Professor Steven Ratuva (FT/20/3) in regards to the likelihood of our first woman prime minister, I am of the view that proven records are better than words and knowledge.

Mereseini Vuniwaqa and Ro Teimumu Kepa among others are proven units in that regard. One has already been given powers to frame policies and rules and is impartial with a lot of political skills.

Women compete for political power fairly in this system. After all politics is an activity not knowledge, Aristotle once said!
