Two candidates to contest Pukapuka by-election

8:40 pm on 4 May 2011

Only two candidates have been nominated in the Cook Islands to contest the Pukapuka by-election on June the 7th.

The vacancy follows a court ruling which found that the candidate of the ruling Cook Islands Party, Tekii Lazaro, had committed bribery in the lead-up to his victory last November.

Tekii Lazaro will again stand as the CIP candidate against the Democratic Party's Vai Peua.
