Sandaun anticipates peaceful polling

Police in Sandaun Province are anticipating peaceful election polling.

“We will not experience a problem,” Provincial Police Commander Robert Gesa said.

The police boss said people in the province are peaceful and they have proven that during the nomination and campaign periods of the 2017 National Election.

PPC Gesa appealed to those in the international border province to continue their daily activities and conduct business as usual.

Meanwhile, the PPC has sent a request to the Police Commissioner to approve the engagement of 60 auxiliary police personnel to support police election operations in the province.

PPC Gesa added that 240 security personnel from police, Correctional Services and PNGDF 2RPIR Forward base in Vanimo will be engaged in the operation.       

The 14 days of nationwide polling will start this Saturday.
