DIVISIONS 4 and 5 candidates in the Bundaberg Regional Council election will have to wait a little longer to discover their fate.

As of late yesterday evening, the divisions had still not been declared despite it being nearly two weeks since the election was held.

In Division 4, no official result has been handed down, even though challenger Vince Habermann maintains a strong lead of more than 500 votes over sitting councillor Mary Wilkinson.

Mr Habermann took roughly 41% of the vote pool with more than 1860 votes.

In Division 5, sitting councillor Greg Barnes has maintained a narrow lead over challenger Kerry Short.

According to the latest figures available yesterday evening, Mr Barnes maintained an 80-vote lead over Mr Short with 2156 votes.

Mr Barnes said he was eager for the division to be declared after a difficult, drawn-out conclusion to the election.

"It's been extremely stressful for me and my family," he said.

"It hasn't been a clean campaign by any means and I'm extremely upset by some of the things that have occurred.

"I'll be glad when it's all over."
