The Supreme Court has provided its reasons for denying a late application from a former Member of Parliament to contest the seat of Vaimaugana No. 1 under an alternate matai title.

The motion was filed by the former M.P. for Vaisigano No. 1, Magailefua Maposua Gafoaleata, who challenged the Electoral Commissioner’s decision to reject his attempt to nominate under his Maposua title.
