Cathy has asked the government what support it is giving to ensure free and fair elections in Papua New Guinea. Cathy will be part of a delegation of four parliamentarians to observe the elections. There are 3,324 candidates, of whom 165 are women and since independence in 1975 only seven women have been elected.
