Tupapa Maraerenga MP George Maggie has won what may be one of the most telling victories of the election, but when CINews tracks him down on election night he’s just enjoying a quiet moment alone, sitting astride his bike outside his house in Tupapa.
In the lead up to the June 14 election, CI News is asking the main political parties to comment on issues of interest to the public. Today’s question: Would your party charge the general public for reticulated water on Rarotonga? If so, how much?
While yesterday’s poll results trumpeted Tina Browne as the country’s preferred prime minister, perhaps a more interesting takeaway is the fact that more than a quarter of respondents were “not sure” about who they thought should lead the country.
Tupapa Maraerenga independent candidate Teresa Manarangi Trott says the Cook Islands has always followed New Zealand medical programmes.
Internal Affairs minister and Cook Islands Party candidate Albert Nicholas is back in Rarotonga, well and ready to serve the people of his RAPPA constituency for another term.
