“We will start the meeting at 9am (today).”
Potape had said on Sunday that Komo-Margarima MP Francis Potape and Koroba-Lake Kopiago MP Philip Undialu had put their hands up to be elected as acting governor when the assembly met.
“There will be no other agenda apart from the election of the acting governor of the province.”

Acting secretary for Provincial and Local Level Government Dickson Guina said his department had given the green light for today’s provincial meeting.
