The counting period in Papua New Guinea's (PNG) national elections has been extended by one week because of polling and counting delays, Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) radio reported Monday.

PNG's governor-general was expected on Monday to invite the political party with the most seats to form the next coalition government.

Over 90 of the 109 parliamentary seats have been decided, with Prime Minister Michael Somare's National Alliance party leading with 25 seats.

The party has spent the past few days persuading independent candidates and smaller parties to come on board, according to ABC.

The National Alliance won the right to form the government in the 2002 elections with 19 seats won.
