NSW National Party sets goal to have women make up half of their MPs by 2025

The New South Wales branch of the National Party does not endorse quotas. However, a goal for 50 % representation by 2025 was recently set:

State leader Troy Grant said the 50 per cent target was to ­'ensure the long-term and fiercely independent ­future of the NSW Nationals'.

Mr Grant has not endorsed quotas for women but said he would be part of a “Male Champions for Change” program that would see senior male Nationals drive the push for gender parity.

As well, the party’s women’s council and Young Nationals will implement mentoring training programs for young women, and the party will adopt its own version of the Canadian Liberals’ #InviteHerToRun campaign, where community members were invited to nominate women as potential candidates.
