Opposition Leader, Don Polye is calling on the Electoral Commission to be transparent when it comes to the printing of ballot paper in Indonesia for the upcoming election.
Polye is asking the Electoral Commissioner, Patilias Gamato, to release information on when the ballot papers are to be printed, when they will be transported to PNG and what mode of transport will they be brought in.
Polye said that every detail of the printing and transport of the ballot paper must be made clear because this was the first time in the history of the country that the papers would be printed overseas.
He also asked if the international observers that will observe the election along with opposition see where the paper is being printed in Indonesia.
Meanwhile, Electoral Commissioner, Patilias Gamato, has said that ballot papers are completed and are being shipped out. He said he will formally release a statement when ballot papers reach PNG shores next month, and because of security reasons he cannot disclose information.
