A candidate and a voter under the Constitution, Mrs Sape cast her vote yesterday at the quiet polling booth at Tokua Barrarks in North Waigani.
The deferral of the polling date to Wednesday, June 27 was a relief to many residents as they voted for the leaders of their choice.
For women rights advocator, Mrs Sape, it was a walk down the street from her family home to put her mark on the ballot paper.
She is standing under her own party, League for Democracy.
She told the media at the site that she would come out a winner despite the high number of male candidates contesting in the electorate.
Mrs Sape also condemned the Opinions poll carried out by Tuesday’s newspapers rating her as fourth place.
This is not the first time Mrs Sape is contesting in the elections; her first try in politics was in 2006, for NCD regional by-election and in 2007 for NCD Regional again.
For Port Moresby, after the polls yesterday, ballot boxes were transported to the counting areas, for counting to take place soon after.
