Record number of election petition filed in Solomon Islands court
High Court registrar Gavin Whithers confirmed this at the close of deadline yesterday, reports the Solomon Star.
Amongst those being petitioned are former Prime Minister Dr Derek Sikua and newly elected MP for Small Malaita and former Governor of the Reserve Bank, Rick Hou.
Former deputy prime minister Fred Fono, who lost the Central Kwara’ae seat, also filed a petition in a bid to reclaim the seat, which he held for 12 years.
Businessman Jackson Fiulaua caused the major upset in the August 4 elections when he unseated Mr Fono.
It’s understood this is the first time a high number of petitions have been filed after an election. The High Court is yet to set dates for hearing.
