Enga Provincial Election Manager, Anton Iamau said Enga is ready for polling next Tuesday.

He said this despite few confrontations between the supporters of candidates and Returning Officers of few electorates.

Enga Provincial Police Commander, Chief Superintendent, George Kakas said the joint security forces are expecting a peaceful election for Enga.

Election Manager, Mr Iamau said Electoral Officials cannot bow down and listen to candidates and their supporters to defer polling next Tuesday.

“We are an independent body,” said Iamau.

Iamau said this yesterday after he was being confronted with supporters of some candidates from the Kombiam-Ambum electorate.

The candidates and their supporters have petitioned the Electoral Commission in Wabag to change all the presiding officials, the Returning Officer and his Assistant.

They claimed that the appointment of the officials was bias and was in favour of a particular candidate in the Electorate.

The Provincial Police Commander, Kakas, said the police and the joint security forces are managing every situation proactively and on a daily basis.

Kakas is expecting a peaceful election after seeing a peaceful campaigning period in Enga.

“Enga Province has been passive as one of the hotspot areas in the Country, in terms of tribal fight during the election,” Kakas said.

“However, I would like to let the public know that people in Enga have changed and we will have a peaceful and successful election,” said Kakas.
