Inconclusive results, Hela recount ordered

Undialu remains governor for now while the Electoral Commission will have 30 days to conduct the recount.

The election petition trial conducted were over allegations of errors and omission by Electoral officials and the manipulation of the final tally figures which led to the declaration of Undialu on 24 July 2017.

The court found that the conduct of Returning Officer John Tipa led to the inconsistent tally records, because he was absent from the counting room when he was duty bound to supervise the counting.
