Polye welcomes decision to keep original election dates

Opposition Leader Don Polye welcomed the decision by Electoral Commissioner Patilias Gamato’s decision not to change the original election dates.

“Our people would eager to see him continue to discharge his duties independently without fear or favour like this until the Return of Writs on July 24.

“Our alternate government will continue working side by side with the Electoral Commission and other stakeholders to see a fair, free and democratic election delivered this year,” Polye said.

Polye has assured the people that their alternate government would continue to scrutinize the electoral processes to avoid electoral fraud.

Gamato announced recently that the normal election calendar will not change with the Issue of Writs on April 20 and campaign period to run for eight weeks.
