So far, unofficials results put the former governor of the Papua New Guinea province of Bougainville, John Momis, ahead of the incumbent president James Tanis.

Radio Australia’s reporter in Bougainville, Aloysis Laukai, said on Monday they were still waiting for the results of the third round.

“There was some problem with the machines and they started again this morning and they are eliminating the third elimination and this will be declared this morning,” he said.
