Sirisia Member of Parliament Rtd Major John Koyi Waluke has retained the Sirisia National Assembly seat after defeating his two challengers by a huge margin.

The Returning officer, Ochanya Kennedy thanked Sirisia residents for maintaining peace during the voting and the tallying period.
Waluke lauded the voters for coming out in large numbers to elect him and for trusting in his leadership again while promising them to develop the constituency at large.
