“That’s great a date has been confirmed’ we’ve been hoping that the announcement would be made before Christmas, so thank you to the Speaker of the House,” he said earlier this week.
Maoate said the Democratic Party central committee had kept in close contact with the Ivirua Democrats.
“Our communication with them has been very positive and our Ivirua team will be very pleased to hear that they will get to say who they want to represent them in Parliament at the start of 2019.”
Meanwhile, the mystery surrounding the whereabouts of RAPPA member of Parliament Albert Nicholas continues with the government being tight lipped as to when the long-absent MP can be expected back in the country.
Maoate has called on the government to “come clean” and state whether MP Nicholas is returning to assume his responsibilities to his constituency and Parliament.
Maoate says for the government to leave one of the largest constituencies in the country without an MP is unfair on all the residents of RAPPA who deserve a lot better than to be left without representation.
