Weed out ‘money politics’: Gelu

Registrar of Political Parties, Dr Alphonse Gelu, told Loop PNG that ‘Money Politics’ has plagued PNG elections killing this key democratic process.

“We have to fight against that particular phenomena which have greatly undermined the conduct of elections since the 1980’s,” Gelu said.

Reports and allegations of bribery, undue influence and rigging of elections are common during general elections.

There have also been countless bi-elections following successful legal battles exposing illegal conduct during National Elections by candidates.
