American Samoa's Congressman says he won't publicly endorse any of the two candidates in the governor's run-off election set to take place on Wednesday

Faleomavaega Eni Hunkin has been asked by the media and political observers to make a public endorsement of either the incumbent, Governor Togiola Tulafono or the challenger Afoa Moega Lutu.

However, the congressman said that like in the general election earlier this month, he will continue to remain neutral during the run-off.
