Philip Undialu joinder request denied 2016

Undialu refused joinder in by-election case

Undialu, who was purportedly elected Governor on the morning of July 5 in Tari, was seeking joinder in the case Andagali filed over the delay in the by-election of the Hela Governor’s seat.

That application was refused as the court was of the view that he will not be affected.

Justice Collin Makail, who heard the application, found that he will not be affected if a by-election went ahead as his election is temporary.
