Twelve Pillars to Peace and Prosperity Party
The Twelve Pillars to Peace and Prosperity Party (TP4) is a political party in Solomon Islands. Launched on 30 May 2010 by Delma Nori, it is the first "women's party" in the country's history. Its stated aim is "to provide a channel for mobilization of women and men who believe in a democratic process that is gender friendly". It took part in the 2010 general election, seeking to have women elected to a Parliament which, in its outgoing legislature, contained no female representatives. It also calls for a more equitable share of the country's resources.
Its membership is not restricted to women.
