Former broadcaster and the first woman to be the General Manager of the state owned Radio 2AP has been confirmed the winner of last Saturday’s bi election for the Constituency of Gagaifomauga Number 1.
Faimalotoa Kika Iemaima Stowers topped the polls with 270 votes, thirty nine votes clear of the next candidate Lavea Natoe Ieti with 231 votes.
With the overall total of votes cast, more than 80% of the 1164 registered voters in the Gagaifomauga Number 1 Electoral Roll were able to vote and had their say in the election of their Member of Parliament.
According to the Electoral Commissioner, Papali’i Malietau Malietoa, “Two double voting cases were detected during the official count where two of the voters cast their votes at the Manase Booth, then separately did so at Safotu and also in Apia.”
“These two voters will be investigated by the Office of the Electoral Commissioner, then the process of the law will be undertaken and prosecutions will be initiated if it sees fit.”
Faimalotoa Kika Iemaima Stowers replaces the late MP Tuilo’a Anetele’a who passed away in June.
