ULP TO FIELD PILOT SON TO CONTEST BULOLO SEAT
The United Labour Party (ULP) is fielding Deputy Prime Minister and Bulolo MP, late Sam Basil’s pilot son to contest the seat.
With nominations set to be opened tomorrow (Thursday), the seat was left undefended when the late sitting MP was killed in a tragic motor vehicle accident last Wednesday night.
Deputy ULP leader and Deputy Speaker, Koni Iguan announced that one of the sons was going to be nominated but he did not disclose the name.
A party official said Sam Basil Junior would be nominated to defend the seat.
Young Basil is a pilot who attained his training in New Zealand.
Meanwhile, the State Funeral for late DPM Basil was concluded in Port Moresby today. The body will be flown back to Lae, Morobe tomorrow morning.
