HONIARA, Solomon Islands (SIBC, May 8) - A Ghaobata chief on North Guadalcanal, Johnson Vogothia, has called for fresh election of the tribal chief of the area.

The tribal chief is the second in rank to the Paramount chief.

Chief Vogothia says the election of the tribal chief on Wednesday was not properly arranged.

He says the election, held at time when the Paramount Chief of Ghaobata hosted another meeting, caused some not to attend the election.

Chief Vogothia says the election was also unfair because, while some part-Malaitans were allowed to vote during the election, others were not allowed.
