Nagriamel Councilllor joins GJP
William Vira, the Independent candidate who scored 273 votes in the 2012 General Elections for Malo constituency, was also in the group that affiliated to GJP. Councillor Boedovo's decision to affiliate to GJP came after extensive consultations with his sub-committees and supporters throughout East Malo, who made a collective decision to switch to GJP.
As President of the Malo-Aore Region for the Nagriamel Party, Councillor Boedovo is considered one of the political "heavyweights" whose support has seen Malo gain its current status as the stronghold of the Nagriamel Party in the country, with two councillors and one MP.
He becomes GJP's first Councillor in the Sanma Provincial Government. GJP President MP Ralph Regenvanu and Executive Member MP Alfred Maoh were on Malo to officially receive the Councillor and his supporters into their new party.
