Outstanding bills

K36 million owed by Electoral Commission

These outstanding claims have not been settled over the last five years and are now affecting polling in some areas around the country.

Polling in Telefomin in the Sandaun province, and South and Central Bougainville in the Autonomous Region of Bougainville, have been disrupted due to outstanding claims.

Electoral Commissioner Patilias Gamato could not give specifics of outstanding claims for each province but said according to the Commission’s records, K17 million is owned to the general service providers.
