At around 1pm this afternoon the Madang Provincial Election Steering Committee together met with the Returning and Assistant Returning officers and Security personnel.

The meeting was for the steering committee to get an update from the Returning and Assistant Returning Officers from the 6 districts.

Madang Open is expected to complete polling tomorrow; only two teams are still conducting polling and are expected to finish on Saturday.

In middle Ramu, all teams are expected to complete polling on Tuesday.

Usino Bundi started polling late due to no security personnel on the ground to provide security thus led to the voters demanding security presence on the ground before polling can commenced.

They are expected to complete polling on Wednesday at the latest given the geographical location in some of the areas as well as fuel for vehicles.

For Rai Coast, only two LLGs Naho Rawa and Astrolabe have completed polling.

They  have transported their ballot papers to the Jomba police station yesterday.

12 ballot boxes for Astrolabe and 14 ballot boxes for Naho Rawa LLG were now locked up at the Jomba police.

Counting is now scheduled to start on Tuesday.
