The Office of the Bougainville Electoral Commissioner (OBEC) has finalised counting for all contested seats at the 2015 Autonomous Bougainville Government General Election.
Among the successful candidates was incumbent President of the Autonomous Bougainville Government, Chief Dr John Momis, who was returned as President.
There has been a turnover of 25 seats across the region, with only 15 incumbent Members of Parliament returned.
The 2015 Election also saw Josephine Getsi become the first ever woman to be elected to an open constituency seat with her victory in Peit.
The successful candidates are expected to be officially sworn in to office on Monday, 15 June 2015.
Bougainville Copper Limited looks forward to working constructively with President Momis and all the other elected representatives of the Bougainville people.
