Chimbu Regional Seat

Chimbu recount time further extended

This is the second extension allowed by the court, after recount results were initially due on February 8 in the National Court.

The counting was delayed over disputes on counting venue preference by supporters. 

The recount results of the Chimbu Regional seat was extended from February, and due in court today, 3rd April. 

However counting continues at the National Sports Institute in Goroka, Eastern Highlands Province.

Lawyers for the Electoral Commission filed a motion, seeking another extension of time from the court to complete the recount.
