23 August 2019 | Politics
The electoral college, also known as the 'pot', will elect 96 members, including 10 who will be appointed by the ruling party's president, to contest the National Assembly elections in November this year.
Namundjebo-Tilahun received a significant 55 votes of the 77 cast, defeating Veno Kauaria who received 14 and Maria Angula, who got a paltry eight votes in the female contest.
“I am humbled by the trust placed in me by the Khomas Region once again to represent their interests and that of the Namibian people,” Namundjebo-Tilahun tweeted this week.
In the male contest, Subasubani was elected with 37 votes, while former NamWater CEO Dr Vaino Shivute came in second place with 24 votes. Lameck Indongo received 15 votes.
During the extraordinary conference, the regional leadership also elected four other delegates to represent it at the electoral college.
They are Paulus Emmanuel, Sacky Uunona, Queen Kamati and Saara Kandapo.
