Jane Tozaka is the wife of national MP for North Vella La Vella, Milner Tozaka.

She won the provincial seat for Ward 10 Irigila and says it was a tough battle but she had strong support in her seat in the lead up to the election.

Speaker: Jane Tozaka, the newly-elected member for Ward 10 Irigila in Western Province
