From , 4:02 pm on 27 September 2016

A Palau senator says the number of women in congress is likely to increase but it's still a man's world.

Palau will hold a presidential primary on Thursday (Sep 29th) with the general election ballot to be held in November.

Senator Sandra Sumang Pierantozzi was Palau's first woman senator and is the only female candidate running for President of Palau.

She told Daniela Maoate-Cox more there are more women in congress now but still more are needed to balance the agenda of male politicians.
