Daniel Urai last night retained his position as general secretary of the National Union of Hospitality, Catering and Tourism Industries Employees.

Mr Urai won the union election, scoring 777 of the 1070 votes cast.

Mereani Qoro, the challenger, polled 285 votes. There were 12 in valid votes.

This is the second election in two months after the first was declared null and void because of complaints about voter registration.

Mohammed Saneem, the Supervisor of Elections,  said they were satisfied with the way the elections went.

This was the first time they had supervised the union’s election. He said they would continue to enhance the quality of election and promote higher standards.

The voter turnout was 53.9 per cent.

Ms Qoro’s achievement was significant because she polled about one third of the votes.
