It’s just absurd
Re: It’s a joke
Rubbish. If there is no opposition candidate to that seat, what is he supposed to do? Go around and look for opposition candidates or vacate the seat?
You don’t have a clue what you’re talking about Wendy.
If there is no opposition to that seat, the only remaining candidate is elected unopposed.
You will see a similar scenario this week on Monday New Zealand time, when the only remaining candidate for Prime Minister in the National Party of New Zealand (Bill English) is elected UNOPPOSED to the Prime Ministership.
The 2 other candidates pulled out. Is Bill supposed to go around asking someone else to challenge him?
Tuilaepa has held the seat of Lepa since 1981. It is patently rubbish to suggest that he doesn’t have any support in that seat.
He won the seat fair and square. To suggest the other guy who got disqualified by the Court had any hope of winning the seat is just absurd.
