​Jiwaka generally quiet

​With a few days to go before polling begins, Jiwaka Province has been generally quiet with no major reports over the campaign period.

Jiwaka Provincial Police Commander, Joseph Tondop, said people have become more aware and knowledgeable about the general elections compared with the past.

He said so far, apart from candidates campaigning in the province, they have not seen much activity with locals.

“Normal business continues and people have returned to their everyday routine.”

Tondop adds that with the limited resource that is available for police, he is still confident that his men will bring Jiwaka through the polling and declaration.

“We will make sure people can be able to exercise their constitutional rights to vote for their leaders for Jiwaka Province,” he said.
