Counting: Wewak open results after 24th elimination

It is certainly a heart stopping finish for the Wewak Open counting in the 2017 National Election.

After exclusion 24, sitting MP Jim Simatab only leads by 512 votes.

With elimination continuing to find the absolute majority, it was originally only 16, 974 votes but will decrease when ballot papers are exhausted during elimination to find a winner.

The progressive scoreboard is: Jim Simatab (NA) – 6535, Kevin Isifu (PPP) – 6023, Silvester Pokajam (Independent) – 5180, Stanley Muts Samban (PNG National Party) -5032 and Ernie Bautista (THE) - 4780
