A Fijian woman has been elected as a member of parliament at Solomon Islands’s North Malaita constituency and is the second woman MP to be elected in parliament.
Solomon Star reports Vika Lusibaea who is originally from Fiji is married to a former rebel leader and government Minister had a landslide victory with 2802 votes ahead of Frederick Kwanairara who had 901 votes.
Government Communications Officer Brian Wanga said the result was received with mixed reaction and many have said that it is good to have a woman MP in parliament.
Wanga said a total of 5693 votes were casted at 21 polling stations in three wards within the constituency and 28 votes were rejected.
After the declaration the new MP has started receiving congratulatory messages on social networking sites and many through the social network Facebook.
Lusibaea’s win is a victory for women in Solomon Islands and she has been a tower of support for her husband, looking after their family business while he was in prison and also during his term as government minister.
