A recount of results in the Mitiaro electorate from the Cook Islands general election in July has given the Democratic Party candidate the seat by a single vote.
The results were recounted last week after the Chief Justice declared one vote was invalid and that it be struck off.
In the original poll in Mitiaro both candidates, the Cook Islands Party's Tuakeu Tangatapoto and the Democratic incumbent, Tangata Vavia, of the Democratic Party, had tied with 50 votes each.
A by-election was held on November 11 but those results have not been counted pending the court hearing a petition and counter petition.
However, no certificate of the latest result is to be issued until the court has finished hearing the outstanding petitions, which is scheduled to happen on December 15th.
In a statement, the court says there is still the potential for another recount following these next hearings.
