Butala says the vote starts at 9.30 am and the resulted is expected an hour later.

A winner must poll more than half of the 33 MPAs, meaning he must collect 17 votes.

Based on the motion, the non-executive MPAs has 17 members whilst Suidani’s group 16.

Tomorrow’s election is necessary following the ousting of Suidani in a vote of no confidence vote on Tuesday.

Meanwhile police have appealed to Malaitans to remain peaceful and allow their leaders to deal with the vote tomorrow.
