Dates, time set for challenges

The battle of the women at Gagaemauga No. 2 is set to be decided on election day after an eligibility challenge filed by Seuoti Siliniu Muagututia against Semau Faamau Levi was withdrawn.

The decision was announced before the Supreme Court yesterday, where the dates and times for six other eligibility challenges were set.  Speaking outside the Court, Semau thanked her territorial constituency of Gagaemauga No.2 for their support.
