Solomon Student Association at USP elects new office bearers

The Solomon Islands Student Association (SISA) at the University of the South Pacific in Suva has a new executive, which was elected yesterday.

The new office bearers are Mr Laban Honimae (President), Peter Damian Tura (Vice-President), Modesta Toiraena (Secretary) and Rocklive Poloso (Treasurer).

In the election results, Laban Honimae collected 193 votes ahead of Martin Kafao who got 92 votes for the position of President. For Vice-Presidency, Peter Damian Tura obtained 191 votes ahead of Patrick Balou. Modesta Toiraena (Secretary) got a close victory with 144 votes ahead of 142 for Leotina Fono. For the Treasurer's post, Rocklive was declared the winner after collecting 223 ahead of Ken Finet's 62 votes.

Chairman of the Electoral committee - Solomon Islands students Association (Laucala campus), Mr David Manetiva says the student voters' turn-out was 47% attributed to the bad weather in Suva.

The formal handing over from the outgoing SISA Executive to the newly elected SISA Executive is expected very soon at a date to be announced by the outgoing SISA Executive.
