​State funeral for late MP

The late Ambunti-Dreikikir MP, Ezekiel Anisi, will be given a State Funeral.

A family member did not reveal the cause of death, but told Loop PNG that the first term parliamentarian was having difficulty in his movement and was bedridden before his death.

He confirmed that the office of the Clerk of Parliament is organising the Port Moresby program, and the tentative date is next week.

The East Sepik Member of Parliament died in Port Moresby on 24 May. He was collecting his election materials when he collapsed at a guest house.

Late Anisi was elected to Parliament at the age of 25, and is a member of the ruling People’s National Congress Party.

He was officially declared as the Ambunti-Dreikikir member-elect after polling 11,200 votes, defeating the United Resource Party candidate, Johnson Wapunai, with just 8,758 votes in the 2012 Elections.
