There's tension in Vanimo with the Member for Vanimo Green River, Belden Namah refusing to vacate the Governor's seat.
Ousted Governor Amkat Mai was re-elected Regional Member over the weekend, subsequently retaining the seat.
The Minister for Inter Government Relations Leo Dion had written to Mr Namah advising him to vacate the seat however Mr Namah is adamant that he is the Governor of West Sepik.
Mr Namah arrived from Port Moresby yesterday with a few of his supporters holding placards at the Vanimo Airport that want the provincial administrator Henry Norm replaced.
Another read, Simon M'Ledu in and Norm out, referring to the suspension of the provincial assembly clerk by the provincial administrator.
Mr Norm suspended Mr M'Ledu for facilitating the election of Mr Namah as the Governor in a Provincial Assembly in July.
Government officers at the Administration building in Vanimo vacated their offices at midday in protest over the situation.
