THE Member for Parliament for Temotu Vatud Fred Tuki Soriocomua has lost her seat following the High Courts ruling in favour of an election petition against her.

Ms Soriocomua was until yesterday the Minister for Women Youth and Family Affairs.

Former Temotu Vatud MP Clay Soalaoi Forau had petitioned Soriocomua’s election on allegations relating to bribery, treating and undue influence which were alleged to have occurred during the period of national general election in November 2014.

Soriocomua was the only female in Parliament among other 49 male MPs.

She had won the 2014 national general against other male candidates including former MP Forau.
