Solomon Star reports Vika Lusibaea who is originally from Fiji is married to a former rebel leader and government Minister had a landslide victory with 2802 votes ahead of Frederick Kwanairara who had 901 votes.
Government Communications Officer Brian Wanga said the result was received with mixed reaction and many have said that it is good to have a woman MP in parliament.
Wanga said a total of 5693 votes were casted at 21 polling stations in three wards within the constituency and 28 votes were rejected.
