Queue in front of Parliament getting longer as vote looms

The queue at the front of Parliament’s gate at Waigani has been getting longer since 6am this morning.

Police are on high alert to keep the crowd under control and control traffic going into Independence Drive.

Police are sending people who are cutting the line to the back as those who had come early are starting to get frustrated.

Drivers have been urged to drive in to do drop offs and drive out again.

People are still fighting for space in the queue.

Only a few minutes ago the first 50 members of the public were let through by police who are trying trying to control the crowd.

There are only 300 passes available for public gallery.
