RENBEL Constituency will proceed with its counting this morning.
The delay was to allow ballot boxes from Bellona to be transported to Tingoa, Renbel Provincial capital where counting will kick off today.
Returning Officer (RO) Rueben Ngiumoana told the Solomon Star from Tingoa station yesterday that ballot boxes from all polling stations around Rennell Island have been safely transported with the assistance of Police to a counting centre at Tingoa.
He said attempts to get ballot boxes from Bellona to Rennell yesterday were unsuccessful due to safety reasons.
Therefore a chartered flight this morning will transport all the ballot boxes from Bellona to Tingoa before counting starts.
When asked about the safety of the ballot boxes in Tingoa and Bellona while waiting for counting, the Returning Officer said there is high visibility of Police presence.
He said already people are anticipating to wait for the counting and results.
Meanwhile he said election was peaceful on Wednesday with no reports of any major disturbances.
