Ialibu-Pangia Open Electorate is not ready for polling.
This was confirmed by the Southern Highlands Election Manager, David Wakias.
Earlier in the day, candidates contesting the seat in the 2017 National Election had told EMTV News that they had presented their petitions to the Southern Highlands Election Manager.
The candidates unanimously agreed that certain issues must be properly addressed before polling. An official letter was registered with the SHP Election manager, Mr David Wakias.
They said that the Ialibu-Pangia electorate will not be conducted polling, unless the issues raised in the letter addressed to the Provincial Election Manager are addressed.
This stand has been taken to safeguard and protect the integrity of the election process.
The candidates persist that there will be no polling until all issues raised in the petition are settled.
