Share the News

With NCD polling set to begin tomorrow morning, the challenge is on how election officials will conclude the polling successfully in one day.

This is because of the vast majority of people from different ethnic groups living in the city who will take the time to cast their votes.

Electoral Commissioner Patilias Gamato who has been wary this situation is confident of delivering a successful polling for NCD.

Chief Secretary Isaac Lupari speaking during the Security and election deployment briefing told media that a metropolitan city like Port Moresby is difficult to manage during polling.

Lupari said this is because NCD has majority of people from different ethnic groups across the country who will turn-up for polling.

This is something the electoral commission,particularly commissioner Patilias Gamato, has been aware of.

Gamato said polling in NCD requires extra man power and security personnel to deliver polling safely.

NCD Metropolitan Superintendent Benjamin Turi said NCD police will tighten up security to make sure the city is safe during polling.
