Liberal MP Dave Sharma has told Sky News the Coalition must deliver on ensuring there is “equal men and equal women” in the next election intake.

Mr Sharma said there are “two winnable spots” on the NSW Senate ticket and at least one of which must go to a woman, but “potentially two”.

“This is how we’ll address this, seat by seat, ticket by ticket,” he said.

“It’s a must deliver, that we need to make sure that the next intake of federal parliamentarians of our side needs to be equal men and equal women."
