Speaking to media outside the counting venue, he said he was happy with how the count progressed quickly and the declaration made today.
Jimmy said while other seats for NCD were still facing issues such as allowances, including Moresby South, the counting officials proceeded to fast track counting.
He further commended Returning Officer, Michael Are, for a job well done.
