Joseph Kobal

Case of SHP RO dismissed

This case was filed by a candidate who contested the Southern Highlands regional seat.

Joseph Kobal filed the case with an urgent application, asking the court to stop returning officer, Jacob Kurap, from performing the duties and function of a Provincial Returning Officer.

This application was refused by Justice Collin Makail, who said the people of Southern Highlands Province deserve a result from the election and the electoral process must be allowed to take its course.
