Dantes Ingin Tsitsi (b. September 28, 1959[citation needed]) is a Nauruan politician.

Political role[edit]

Tsitsi was elected to Parliament in the 2007 general elections[citation needed], gaining the seat of Godfrey Thoma and representing the constituency of Aiwo. He was re-elected in the 2008 snap elections, and then in the April 2010 election, but lost his seat in the June 2010 election, where he was the only incumbent to be defeated.[1]

Family background[edit]

Tsitsi is a close relative of former parliamentarian Edwin Tsitsi, a member of the first Parliament in 1968.[citation needed] Nauru's politics tend to be somewhat family oriented.
