From , 5:05 am on 25 September 2017

Fiji's National Council of Women is calling for special measures to get more women in parliament.

The General Secretary Fay Volatabu says the current system is unfair towards women and special provisions are needed.

There are currently eight women in the 50 seat parliament but Ms Volatabu says this is not enough.

Ms Volatabu told Koro Vaka'uta how many seats should be set aside for women.
