Sitting Nuku MP, Joe Sungi, is confident of defending his seat in the West Sepik Province.

Sungi submitted his nomination in the District, witnessed by the Returning Officer, Francis Yawalan.
Defending his seat, Sungi told those that gathered, the improvement of services reaching the people is the reason behind being elected in 2012.
Sungi will be challenged by nine other candidates in this year’s election.
