Among them was the petition filed against East New Britain Governor, Nakikus Konga, by former governor, Sir Leo Dion.
Returning Officer Joap Voivoi was summoned on the request of Dion’s lawyer to appear in court for the trial. Other electoral officers will also be summoned soon.
Dion is alleging grounds of errors and omission during counting against the Electoral Commission.
He alleges that electoral officials who conducted counting were not appointed or gazetted as returning officers and assistant returning officers.
