Politically, I cannot grade myself up in the high or rather top end of the scale. Hence my comments and opinions must not be seen as accurate and absolute. Obviously I’m just a minor, trying to make an impression at this arena.
My Top 10 candidates after the First Preference Vote count will be as follows:
1. Peter Nomai
2. Alex Hoem Robert
3. Bruce Mamando
4. Matilda Koma
5. Cyprian Mang
6. Mathew Poia
7. Jimmy Gulolo
8. William Samb
9. John Mona
10. Alphonse Hega
The 11th through to 20th placing will be taken up by Felix Gitai, Michael Stitt, Daniel Simana, Boniface Eve, Titus Girau, Alphonse Moroi, Peter Ellison, Raymond Rex Kopa, Fabianne Inne,
The other 11 unnamed here on my list are obviously on first round of elimination.
In the Tauwade speaking Goilala tribes, Peter Nomai stands tall amongst the other candidates. Tapini LLG has 7000 eligible voters hence Peter commands are very healthy support base. Raymond Kope and Peter Ellison will give Peter a good run but Nomai will edge out top ahead still.
In the Kunimaipa speaking Goilala tribes, Mathew Poia, Alphonse Moroi, Felix Gitai, Alex Hoem Robert, Titus Girau and John Jamoro will split and tear 4000 eligible voters amongst themselves. The survivor in this battle will be Alex Hoem Robert followed by Mathew Poia and Felix Gitai and Titus Girau and Alphonse Moroi lagging behind respectively. Mathew by this time around is reached him prime.
And Felix Gitai seem very much confined to the upper Kunimaipa section of Guari LLG. Titus Girau also is concentrated around the Jova Loloipa and Toloro area as well. Alphonse Moroi will have to perform a miracle to unsettle the popularity Alex Hoem is enjoying right now in the Lower Kunimaipa area.
With 14800 eligible voters at their disposal, I see William Samb giving Matilda, Jimmy Gulolo and Cyprian Mang with John Mona a head start.
The dark horse in Fuyuge battle is Bruce Mamando since this is where he has been basing out of, since coming to Goilala. Michael Stitt, Aphonse Hega, Fabiane Inne, Daniel Simana and Boniface Eve will make up the bottom end of this battle.
Bruce will give Matilda Koma and John Mona with William Samb a very good run for his money in this one. And if nature permits, Bruce can cause an upset in Woitape LLG.
