Assistant Returning Officer Jamaika Agba told Loop PNG that out of the total, three candidates have also put their hands up to contest.
They are Esther Siruwe, Marie Simo and Lynetth Neneo.
Agba said the officials will be compiling the candidates’ files and will issue them their box numbers today.
He described the nomination week as the best with no record of illegal activities reported.
He called on the candidates to encourage their supporters to support and campaign peacefully and not to create nuisance during the campaign and polling period.
