Kandep Recount 2019

Former MP corrects misreporting

He condemned the press, in particular a daily newspaper, for the misreport on 5th July.

Polye said the National Court handed down a clear and profound decision which was to be executed by the Electoral Commissioner and its Returning Officer.

The recount of the Kandep Open seat was ordered after Justice Colin Makail, on July 4th, upheld two out of eight alleged breaches in the election petition.

Polye calls for peace

His statement follows the National Court ruling in Waigani for a recount of the Kandep Open Seat.

The decision was delivered by Justice Colin Makail on July 4th.

A huge crowd had also turned up outside the Waigani Court House in anticipation of the outcome, with jubilant scenes after the recount order.
