Madang slowly wrapping up counting

With most of the provinces throughout the country already declared some of their members, Madang is yet to declare one member.

While, neighboring provinces in the region have declared some candidates in the past week, Madang is yet to compete counting, at least for most of its districts.

This is evident as the regional Seat hasn't even hit the half way mark in counting for over 200 ballot papers.

While the Madang open seat is in its early stages of elimination, followed by Bogia open, other districts still need to complete counting.
