PNG Election Results 2022: How to follow the counting as it happens

The PNG election results are the work of the electoral commission. The commission is directly responsible for counting, declaring and returning the 2022 Election Writs to the Governor-General. However, it is not clear how the PNG EC will relay the election results to the public.

The election results are now coming out of the provinces from journalists, scrutineers and individuals other than the PNG electoral commission.

Declaration of election winner by the electoral commissioner

In past elections, counting was done in each provincial capital and results were returned to the EC in Port Moresby for the official declaration. 

There were instances of malpractices where the Provincial Returning Officers (PROs) were declared the winner in the province. 

For example, the first parliament sitting after the 2017 election saw 2 candidates sitting in the Parliament chamber. They were declared winners, one by the EC and the other by the provincial returning officer.

Such instances can be avoided if the PNG EC does it properly and centrally in Port Moresby after the counting is completed.
