THE election process is moving slowly in the Central Highlands with postal votes still filtering in.
As it currently stands the eight councillors will be Peter Maundrell, Charlie Brimblecombe, Gail Nixon, Gai Sypher, Kev Cracknell, Kevin Pickersgill, Paul Bell and Gail Godwin-Smith. However, this could still change.
This result is a turn around from the Emerald-heavy council with only two candidates from the town, compared to four previously.
Candidates including longstanding councillor Gail Nixon have raised concern over the low percentage of votes returned. Currently only 64.74% of votes have been received and counted.
Mayor Peter Maguire returns to the position having not been challenged. A final result should be available by Wednesday.
