Meet PNG’s Governor Julie Soso Akeke


Read this brief interview with PNG’s first woman to be elected into the PNG Parliament from the Highland region.

“My father is the paramount chief of our tribe and a pioneer leader who brought about development in our province. I wanted to continue his legacy. I also stood for elections because I wanted women to get up there and participate equally in national decision-making. If other women cannot make it, I must be the one to break the glass ceiling.” ~ Governor Julie Soso Akeke
