First woman elected in PNG elections

Delilah Gore has just beaten her former boss and, Anthony Nene, for Sohe Open Seat in Oro (Northern) province.
Gore has just been declared winner as a member of Don Polye's Triumph Heritage Empowerment (THE) Party.
Since the start of the polls she has maintained a very good lead over all challengers for the Sohe Open Seat.
"When I left office I went to all four districts," she told NBC Radio.
"I went out empowering women and youths.
"I told women to vote for women, and that's what they did."
She said her focus would be on rural development.
"We have lacked government services for a long time," Gore said.
