Tonga womens group welcomes female cabinet minister

Updated January 11, 2011 17:02:46

A womens group in Tonga has welcomed the appointment of a female cabinet minister, but is still unhappy that not a single woman was elected to parliament.

The Tonga Womens and Childrens Crisis Centre says it's good that Dr Ana Taufe'ulungaki [Tow-fey-oo-loong-gar-key] has been made Minister of Education, Womens Affairs and Culture.

Ofa Guttenbeil-Likiliki, the WCCC's director, says they're less happy that she had to be appointed from outside parliament, seeing as there's not a single female MP after Niovember's election.

Presenter: Bruce Hill
Speaker: Ofa Guttenbeil-Likiliki, director of the Tonga Womens and Childrens Crisis Centre
