8:25 pm on 23 September 2014

A Solomons Islands political party says it fully supports a gender balance government.

At the official launch of the People's Alliance Party in Honiara, the party's parliamentary leader, Milner Tozaka, said the party was meeting requirements of the Political Parties Integrity Act, with a commitment to having women make up 10 percent of its members.

He says his party is also committed to the Convention on Elimination of Discrimination Against Women.

Mr Tozaka says the support for a gender balance administration shows the PAP is a solid and dynamic party, which has an "outstanding" record of performance in the country's development.
