Opposition Leader and President of the New Democratic Party, Godwin Friday and opposition Senator Shevern John have travelled to the United Kingdom to take part in an international conference promoting women’s participation in politics. 

The NDP said the opposition leader will return to St. Vincent on Friday and John a few days later.

“I am pleased to have been invited to participate in this important conference focussing on this crucial issue,” the NDP quoted John as saying ahead of the conference.

“We need to do everything possible to bring more women into the political process,” said John, a former teacher who fell 69 votes shy of winning the North Windward seat in 2020 on her first attempt.

“This is an opportunity to discuss how we can encourage greater involvement for women at every level of politics and ensure that political parties seek out best practice to encourage and support women,” she further said.

Meanwhile, Friday said he welcomes the opportunity to participate in the event “to learn from and share experiences with other parties from around the world.

“I believe that this is an important issue and I am pleased to take part in the conference and look forward to the discussion and debate. We must ensure that more women can play a role in politics.”
