Police will support the Electoral Commission’s decision to hold the recount of the Simbu regional seat in Goroka says Police Commissioner Gari Baki.
Commissioner Baki said that the police support is based on the decision of the Court and that the time factor is also a great consideration.
Mr Baki said his earlier comment was made based on security concerns being raised should Lae be considered as a venue for the recount.
Commissioner Baki assured that three mobile squads and a senior officer from the National Police Headquarters will be sent to beef up security for the recount.
