Independent candidate Karipe polled a total of 15,272 votes after the 25th elimination of Vincent Pyati to surpass the absolute majority of 14,086 this week at the Wabag Primary School counting venue in the heart of Wabag town.
 
Another independent candidate and SML landowner, Dickson Puri Pundi, finished second with 12,974 votes while Vincent Pyati came third with 10,309 votes, FM 100 reported.
 
Karipe says his first mission is to bring back normalcy in the trouble-torn golden valley before pushing for the reopening of the giant Porgera gold mine, which is owned by Barrick Niugini.
