CONGRATULATIONS to the people of Pomio electorate for returning incumbent MP Paul Tiensten.
The majority of people in his electorate have spoken through the democratic process by re-electing him.
Tiesten is a young visionary and vibrant leader.
He was given some senior portfolios in the previous NA-led government.
He initiated some impact programmes in his electorate and his efforts to deliver services to his people during his term in parliament had seen him re-elected in this year’s general election.
I believe incumbent MPs do not need to campaign as hard because programmes initiated during the last term of parliament will let the people decide who gets the opportunity to represent them.
