PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (August 3, 1997 - PACNEWS)---Papua New Guinea's Electoral Commission has formally received petitions challenging last month's results in four electorates.

The Commission says it anticipates more petitions to be filed once candidates gather sufficient evidence to submit their cases to the PNG Court of Disputed Returns.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Planning Chris Haiveta's win is one of those being challenged.
