Tough challenge ahead for Wingti
WESTERN Highlands Governor Paias Wingti faces a tough challenge to retain his Regional Seat. That challenge comes in the form of a younger candidate, Tom Olga, who is supported by elite businessmen, academics and politicians from the province.
They are branding him as the next “Wingti”. Mr Olga is moving huge crowds during his campaign around the province.
A council president from WHP ,who wanted to remain anonymous, claimed Mr Olga was a hot candidate for the provincial seat. “It is too early to make predictions but Tom Olga is certainly moving huge crowds throughout the province.
This is exactly what Paias Wingti does and we think he is the next Wingti for the people of WHP,” the councillor said.
However, Mr Wingti is not likely to give away a seat he has held for more than 20 years.
“Mr Wingti is openly campaigning in the province, gathering huge number of people around the province,” Joseph Teneng, chief leader and former Lord Mayor of Mt Hagen, said. “But I don’t know who will win the regional seat this election, things don’t seem to be like before.”
Mr Teneng who claims to be Mr Wingti’s supporter, added politics today was not like in the past and he expressed doubts over Mr Wingti returning.
Mr Olga is supported by Dei MP Melchior Pep, NA candidate for Mul Baiyer Lumusa, Sani Rambi who gave him a vehicle and logistic support and even businessman Pugma Kopi stepped down from running for the regional seat to support the young man.
