Manus counting underway

The counting was deferred to today due to heavy rain in the province.

The counting venue, Sahat hall in Lorengau, has been used for counting for over 40 years now and seen very little to no renovation at all.

Manus Provincial Police Commander, Chief Inspector David Yapu, said counting had to be deferred due to its leaking roofs, which pose a possibility of ballot boxes getting wet.

He said heavy rain since Saturday morning also caused flooding into the counting venue.

Enga leader calls for peaceful polling

Nathan Piari, commonly referred to as Mr West, has called on the people, especially in the Highlands, to abide by law and conduct themselves peacefully during polling.

Piari, who formally contested the Enga Regional seat in the 2012 national election and now running for his Laigaip/Porgera constituency under the ruling People's National Congress Party said the campaign period has been peaceful so far and the same should be maintained during polling.

Basil: Pangu to campaign for pro-candidates

Basil said the confirmed listing of all 82 candidates to run under the party banner had already been submitted to the Register of Political Parties and PNG Electoral Commission.

But there are some candidates throughout the country not on the official list submitted by the General Secretary, Morris Tovebae on 17 May.

A good example is in East Sepik Province, where two candidates contesting for the Regional Seat have their posters stating that they were endorsed by Pangu Party.

I will not support PNC: Maxtone-Graham

A candidate for the NCD regional Seat, Maxtone-Graham, said he will not support PNC and the leadership of Parliamentary leader and Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, labeling the party as self-serving.

“You look at the debt, you look at all this chaos. No medicine in the hospitals, unemployment, the list is so long,” said Maxtone-Graham.

Maxtone-Graham was the former Health Minister in the O’Neill led coalition that ousted Sir Michael Somare in 2011.
