The President of the National Council of Women in Kiribati, Meere T. Riwata, says she expects a new Ministry of Women, Youth and Social Affairs to be set up.
This comes after an election promise by Anote Tong who was re-elected as the country's president in yesterday's nationwide poll.
Mrs Riwata says this is a positive step.
"We've been with the Minjistry of Socal Development , we've been with the Ministry of Health. We are always moving around, but now that we will have this Ministry of our own it will give us a very bright future for the women of Kiribati."
