The Joint Security Operation in the Western Province will see over 100 Defence Force personnel assisting in the Elections.

“These soldiers will come from the Weam Border operations of the Western Province,” Max Paul, Western Province Election Manager told EMTV Online.

The Weam Border straddles the Indonesia-Papua New Guinea boundary.

“We have over 100 polling teams,” Paul said.

Polling materials for the province are ready with most being delivered by air and dinghy through the many river systems in the Province.

“There has been little security concerns during the campaign period, and we hope that this will continue throughout the polling and counting days,” Paul stressed.

The three electorates in the Province are North Fly Open, Middle Fly Open, and South Fly Open.
