The constituency was established for the Fifth Parliament in 1993, and its first MP was Alfred Maetia.[2] Fred Fono won the seat in 1997, and was twice re-elected, ultimately becoming deputy Prime Minister in 2007.[3] He stood for a fourth term in 2010, but was unseated by political newcomer and independent candidate Jackson Fiulaua, in what was described as "the major upset" of the election.[4] Fiulaua then became Minister for Infrastructure and Development in Danny Philip's government.[5]
