Yama confident in recount’s outcome

Madang Governor Peter Yama has called on the people of Madang to stay calm and allow the court process to take its course.

Yama said he is confident the outcome of the recount will be in his favour.

Governor Yama said the people of Madang have mandated him and they have nothing to worry about.

He said his more than 85,400 voters speak volumes.

The National Court had ordered a recount into the Madang Provincial seat last Thursday.
The recount order was issued after the court found that James Yali, who was a parolee when he nominated to contest the elections, was not eligible.

However, Yama will be seeking leave to review the decision in the Supreme Court.
