Jimi Open

Jimi Open petition fails to meet requirements

The petition disputing Wake Goi’s election as Jimi MP was thrown out of the Waigani National Court on Friday.

Justice Ellenas Batari found the petition incompetent because petitioner Mai Dop failed to comply with Form 1 of the 2017 election petition rules.

That form should contain details (name, occupation and address) of two attesting witnesses when the petition is filed in court disputing an election.
