Dale Cecil

Nauru court to rule on whether petition properly served on president

Baron Waqa won back his seat in the Boe constituency with 246 votes but Dale Cecil, who won 144, accused him of bribery, treating and breaking advertising laws on Election Day.

Since filing the petition Mr Cecil has had his pension cancelled by the government.

A former president, Sprent Dabwido, says there is now a dispute about whether Mr Cecil properly served the petition on Mr Waqa.
