Aloysius Amwano Politician

Aloysius Arabao Iyomogo Edrick Amwano (also called Ali Amwano; b. 21 June 1955) is a Nauruan politician. Amwano started his parliamentary career in 1998, when he won a vacated seat in a by-election for the Ubenide Constituency following the resignation of former president Lagumot Harris. In the 2000 general elections he was re-elected; during a political crisis in 2001 all four Ubenide members lost their seats in parliament, but along with two colleagues Amwano subsequently regained the seat in the following by-election. After the 2003 general elections he lost his seat to Fabian Ribauw. In 2008 he was re-elected to parliament, ousting Ribauw. He became part of President Marcus Stephen's parliamentary majority, before switching over to the opposition in 2010. He was one of three non-Cabinet government MPs to switch to the opposition after benefiting from a trip to Singapore organised and paid for by the Australian company Getax, which buys Nauruan phosphate.
