Need more women in parliament

THERE needs to be more women participation in Parliament in the country, says former cabinet minister Lavinia Padarath.

Ms Padarath said this had been her lifetime aim — to see more women engaged in politics — and this was the reason she joined politics in the first place.

“We really need to have women in politics because when women and men in partnership work together, it produces even more co-operation rather than to do it separately,” Ms Padarath said.
