Gore leads mass support to nominate

Incumbent Sohe MP, Delilah Gore, led hundreds of supporters today as she nominated for the seat she currently occupies.

Leading just over 20 trucks and vehicles overloaded with supporters, Gore and her supporters began their journey from Sasembata village in Higaturu LLG all the way to Popondetta Town.


The main freeway in Popondetta was closed off by supporters who danced and sang their way to the Sohe District Administration Office to nominate.


Supporters claim the backing dwarfed that of incumbent Oro Governor, Gary Juffa, a day before.


Gore was cheered as she made her way to meet Returning Officer, Wesley Korapeba, who took her through the formalities.


Following that and a handshake, Gore officially nominated at 12.32 pm.


Gore returned with her supporters to their family residence at Asonoata Block to thank her supporters for braving the heat to show their support.


She made special mention to those who travelled all the way from the Kokoda LLG, as well as from the other LLG’s of Higaturu, Kira and Tamata.


Gore and her supporters are confident of retaining the Sohe Open seat.
