All five MPs from the Sandaun Province  are now in the Laguna camp after the return of  Sandaun Governor, Tony Wouwou.

Wearing a Trukai Fun Run t-shirt,  Mr. Wouwou appeared quite jovial as he  was welcomed by other MPs into the camp.

Over the past week,  Mr. Wouwou has been attacked and ridiculed on social  media  after  he initially appeared in an opposition news conference  then later,  on the same day, declared that he was a die hard  member of the People’s National Congress.

“We have the member for Vanimo Green, the member for Aitape-Lumi, the Member for Nuku and now we have the Governor. I am the here as the Member for Telefomin,”  Former Defence Minister, Solan Mirisim  said in the news conference.

Various MPs including East Sepik Governor, Allan Bird, defended Mr. Wouwou saying he had to seek consent from his people before officially moving to the opposition.

Vanimo-Green MP, Belden Namah, who did a head count this afternoon said the camp now had two thirds of the  governors in the country. Adding it was a sizable figure that expressed how provinces were feeling.

His arrival this afternoon now adds one more MP to the camp, bringing to the number to 58.
