Counting has been exhausted for Central Laiagam, Lagaip Headwaters and Sirunki. Currently electoral counts are being done for Mulitaka, Porgera and Paela.

Philip Kapus Kikala is leading on 9,300 votes with Kappa Yarka a close second on 9,200. Kappa Yarka's Sirunki stronghold has been exhausted but PKK managed to maintain the lead. From here on out, it seems PKK will go into the 10,000s while the rest remain dormant. PKK has stronger support in Kasap, Mulitaka and Porgera/Paela. Otherwise he has mustered most of the second votes in those areas with the support of leaders such as Anton Pakena of Paela.

The threat to split his votes by relatives and tribal candidates is now over!!!

Sounds promising for PK. As we know from previous elections that anybody who can muster votes from upper-lagaip, central lagaip and porgera wins the election. When count begins from upper-lagaip, they lead because thats their stronghold. When it comes to porgera and paela areas, they tend to perform poorly and guys from that area shoot straight to lead and win the election.

If PK collects votes from mulitaka, tumudan, maip, porgera and paela, surely he is on track to win the election. I dont think, Karpa has strong support in those areas mentioned.

Now, on another note, i am a bit suspicious about the outcomes of the election from Kandep. I was hoping and supporting for the return of Deputy Prime minister Don Polye, but, my suspicions are, how come most candidates in the electorate never collected even up to thousands. Some even collected nil first votes. This is amazing, given the Engan culture where we have relatives and friends and voters vote along tribal lines. Has this mentality changed in Kandep? The outcome of the election in Kandep open electorate fascinates me.
