A women and families NGO in Tonga is backing the introduction of a practice parliament for women, saying it is high time women became more involved in politics.
Tonga currently only has one woman in parliament, who was appointed by the prime minister rather than elected.
But Tonga is soon to launch a women's practice parliament, which will run for two days in April.
The director of Ma'a Fafine Moe Famili, Betty Blake, says she really believes in the concept.
"I believe it is a fantastic idea. It is about time that our government consider the importance of women being part of parliament and a practice parliament for women, I feel, is very essential and very timely and it is about time."
