Arore, who is the candidate for the ruling People’s National Congress Party (“PNC”), wrestled the lead from United Resource Party candidate John Warisan, who had led since counting began.
After the completion of Count 23, Arore leads with 4378 votes.
Count 23 to 27 are for ballot boxes within the Afore LLG area, known stronghold for Arore.
He is therefore expected to build up a significant lead.
Another candidate, Sheldon Deilalah is also from the Afore LLG and is also expected to fare well.
