​Leading ESP candidate threatens to sue rivals

East Sepik Regional candidate, Allan Bird, is seeking legal advice to prosecute a group of candidates running for the regional seat, who have allegedly accused him of rigging the election.

He said he had collected the highest number of votes in Wosera-Gawi, Ambunti-Dreikikir and Wewak for obvious reasons, and that is his home and where he has invested time and resources over 25 years of living and working in the province.

Bird, a member of the National Alliance party, is currently leading the progressive tally in the East Sepik regional seat, and has collected more than 60 thousand votes to date.

He said he will study the basis of the allegations levelled against him, and if there are any defamatory statements, he will sue his accusers for defamation.
