COUNTING: Moresby North-West eliminations underway

24 candidates are expected to be eliminated from the race after the 24th elimination count later tonight.

3 candidates have been excluded so far, with the 4th exclusion count currently in motion.

This has yet to make a difference with the candidates running in the top 5 category.

However, it is still expected that after the 24th elimination count, numbers of the top 5 candidates are bound to change drastically as more of the other candidates with lower counts are eliminated from the race.
