He was nominated by Gulf Governor Chris Haiveta, and moved by Hela Governor Philip Undialu, and following no other nomination, Madang MP Bryan Kramer closed the nomination motion.

The Parliament Clerk then officially declared the first sitting of the new parliament open for business.

After Speaker Pomat took the stand, Tari Pori MP James Marape congratulated him.

Speaker Pomat adjourned parliament to leave for Government House where he will be sworn into office.

He is on his way to Government Haus at Konedobu to be officially sworn in.

The speaker will then convene Parliament again in the afternoon to elect the Prime Minister.
