Although the scheduled start time was 9am, officials were called in at around 10:20am.
Officials stood in line while Electoral Commission officers called them in, one by one, for the NCD regional count.
Also at the venue will be counting for Moresby North-West.
While officials were let in, a few among the group began calling out for allowances.
Officials from other counting venues have threatened to boycott counting until allowances are paid.
