Women's seats quota

Samoa Parliament agrees to clarify wording on women's seats quota

There had been a recommendation from a parliamentary committee looking into the political crisis which followed the 2021 election to scrap the entire provision.

TheĀ Samoa ObserverĀ said the committee modified its recommendation on the issue, and it was one of several out of more than 50 approved by the Legislative Assembly on Friday.

The initial report from the Committee tabled by chairman, Auapaau Mulipola Aloitafua, earlier his week called for the entire provision to be removed.
