Gyang Zi of the Labour Party had 33,243 votes.

The ADP candidate was a preferred choice after the exclusion of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) candidates Simon Mwadkwon and Musa Agah Avia from the ballot.

With the PDP’s exclusion, party leaders, including former Governor Jonah David Jang, rallied behind Mr Dachungyang.

The rerun was ordered by the Court of Appeal following a petition by Mr Zi and PRP’s Mohammad Adam Alkali, challenging the victories of PDP candidates in the February 2023 elections.
