Pruaitch’s declaration to be challenged

Candidate and runner-up of the Open seat, Emmanuel Solwai Mambei, has lodged the election petition at the National Court, saying he has immense support from people in the district, including candidates who contested the Aitape-Lumi Open seat in the recent 2017 national elections.

Mambei says bribery is among the number of allegations leveled against the leader of the National Alliance Party, and now Leader of the Opposition.
