Mangape happy court battle is now over

Thursday 24th January 2013

Laigaip-Porgera MP Nixon Mangape says he would now focus on delivering tangible services in his electorate following his recent election petition victory.
His election win was disputed by former MP Philip Kikala but during a competency hearing, the National Court at Wabag dismissed the case after it found that the petition was incompetent and did not warrant a trial.
A relieved Mr Mangape said the election petition had interrupted his work plans for his electorate and he would now focus on delivering services to his electorate.
He said in a statement that Laigaip-Porgera was a large electorate with a population of more than 100,000 and many issues to attend to.
The issues such as the mining review for the Porgera Gold Mine, outstanding MoA commitments and law and order issues. He said his first task would be to develop a five-year-development plan for his electorate.
As per the Prime Minister’s declaration of 2013 as year of implementation, he said he would focus on indentifying significant impact projects in the electorate and engage suitable people to implement those projects.
He said he would also consider capacity in the districts before commencing the projects.
He thanked his supporters and family members for their patience during the court challenge
