& # 39; Very depressed and sick man trying to set himself on fire at the East Lorengau Transit Center on Manus, & # 39; he tweeted.
& # 39; Refugees on Manus start their day with a suicide attempt, this poor fellow who has been suffering physically and mentally for a long time, but they ignored him. & # 39;
Mr. Muhamat said there has been an increase in suicide attempts on the islands and it is linked to the outcome of the elections.
Author, activist and detainee at Manus, Behrouz Boochani said the refugees have been & # 39; dumped in high depression & # 39 ;.
& # 39; I've never seen people like that. At least six people have tried to commit suicide and there are now three people in the hospital who are critical, & he wrote on Twitter.
& # 39; The federal elections had a huge negative impact on people on Manus and Nauru.

Following Liberal's shock win on Saturday, the Scott Morrison government will set a limit of 18,750 on the number of humanitarian visas that Australia would issue each year.
60 percent of this is for women.
It would increase the percentage of resettled refugees in regional areas from 30 to 40 percent to reduce pressure on busy cities.
These refugees should have lived in regional areas for at least three years to qualify for a permanent residence permit.
Total permanent immigration would be capped at 160,000, a decrease from the current net level of 190,000, of which 110,000 skilled migrants plus 47,000 family places.
Australia's actual intake has only twice exceeded the maximum value of the Coalition since the early 1980s and accepted 19,998 in 2012-13 and 21,968 in 2016-17.

Mr. Morrison has also repealed the so-called & # 39; Medevac law & # 39; as one of its most urgent priorities.
However, it is unlikely that the revocation will receive support from the Senate, despite its re-election.
The roadblock can be expensive.
The laws were passed by Labor and the independents against the wishes of the Morrison government.
They give doctors more power to recommend the transfer of sick asylum seekers and refugees on Manus Island and Nauru for medical treatment.
In the first month, only one person was transferred to Australia under the laws, despite warnings from the government that hundreds would arrive within a few weeks.
The prime minister spent $ 185 million on the reopening of the Christmas Island detention center to deter asylum seekers from & # 39; gaming the system & # 39; under the new regime.
The budget showed that, if re-elected, the government would try to repeal the laws and close the center by July.

& # 39; There is no form of the Medevac law that makes our borders stronger & # 39 ;, Morrison said earlier this year.
& # 39; The only thing I would ever want to do is to abolish it in its entirety and the Australian people will be able to talk about it in the next election. & # 39;
However, to repeal medical transfer laws at the end of June, the government should remember the current Senate, which supports the legislation.
Otherwise it would have to wait until the new Senate starts in July and misses the deadline.
But even then the government would still have trouble repealing the laws supported by Labor and the Greens.
Following Liberal's shock win on Saturday, the Scott Morrison government will set a limit of 18,750 for the number of humanitarian visas that Australia would issue in a year.
The coalition should convince five of the six senators of the probably cut new crossbank.
However, the two senators from the Center Alliance will not agree to the closing of the bill, causing the government to snookered.
& # 39; Center Alliance supported the medevac law in the last parliament and so we will not support it being repealed in the current parliament & # 39 ;, said Senator Stirling Griff on Monday to AAP.
The Morrison government initially budgeted $ 1.4 billion in four years to reopen Christmas Island, before simplifying predicted spending through the plans outlined in the budget.
