2017 General Election: Nomination Day Two

Former Ombudsman Commissioner, Ila Geno, has paid his nomination fee to contest the Central Governor’s Seat.

In the 2012 National Elections, Geno ran for the Rigo Open. For 2017, he will be running against sitting MP, Kila Haoda.

Meanwhile, Robert Agen a civil engineer by profession was the fourth candidate that was nominated today for the NCD Regional Seat.

Agen is a civil engineer by profession, and will be contesting against sitting governor, Powes Parkop.

After a tour around Port Moresby, Agen and his supporters arrived at the Electoral Office at Boroko.

He was escorted into the Office by his mother and was received by Election Manager, Terence Metenu Hetinu.

Agen is a Civil Engineer by profession and comes from Sinesine in the Simbu province.

For 20 years, he worked in the United Kingdom, and has contributed to building railways for a number of European Countries.

Agen says he is contesting because most infrastructures in the city were built without proper planning.

As a civil engineer, he believes he can help address this.

Agen is running as an Independent Candidate and his policies include providing free education and providing accommodation for teachers.

As of 1pm, four candidates paid their nomination fees to contest the NCD Regional Seat, while two others were nominated for the Moresby Northwest Electorate.

Meanwhile, the Transport Board and Traffic Police say supporters who overload vehicles will be criminally prosecuted.
