YourVote2017 – EP9 | Taskforce set up to carry out forensic assessment on electoral roll

Share the News

The Electoral Commissioner’s announced that a taskforce will be set up to carry out a ‘forensic assessment’ of the electoral roll, ahead of the next election, in 5 years time.

The state of the role has been perhaps the biggest point of contention so far, with major discrepancies in electorates right across the country.

On YourVote 2017, we ask how it came to this, given both PNG’s very own anti-corruption watch-dog, TIPNG raised concerns after the 2012 poll, as did various teams of international observers.

Transparency International’s Arianne Kassman joins YourVote 2017 team to discuss, and try answer whether the Electoral Commissioner’s announcement has come too late – or is late, better than never?
