Upolu registers first female candidate for Samoa’s election

Maugaoalii was seen at the NPF plaza registration centre in Upolu, formalising her candidacy for the ruling Human Rights Protection Party

She had earlier announced her intentions to run against Samoa’s Minister of Justice and Courts Administration (MJCA), Afioga Faaolesa Katopau Ainu’u for the village of Apia, under Vaimauga IV.

Maugaoalii filed a lawsuit against the National University of Samoa earlier this year for wrongful dismissal when the NUS had dissolved the Deputy Vice Chancellor for Corporate Services position.
