Mald withdraws bid to stop counting

Mald instructed his lawyers to file the case in the Waigani National Court last week.

His lawyer however, withdrew the application and case when it went before the court. This was because events had overturned and the disputed box was already counted at the time the subject of the case went to court.

The interim relief he was seeking in the application was for the court to stop the counting for one box from the Kinakon rain tree polling area at 12-Mile, outside Port Moresby.
