​Polye questions Gamato’s decision

The PNG Electoral Commissioner’s decision to not change Election Returning Officers is not in the best interest of the country.

"The justification by Patilias Gamato is low and shallow,” says Opposition Leader Don Polye. 

“It is to do with their future in the next five years. He has lost his bearing to conduct a free, fair, democratic and safe election.

"I ask him to come to sense and do the right thing.”

Polye said some returning officers have clear evidences available to warrant for a change.

"Twenty-seven days is enough to make those genuine and necessary changes to ensure a trouble-free election.

“I am seeking a legal opinion on this to take appropriate action against the commission.”

Meanwhile, Commissioner Gamato is yet to respond to questions sent by Loop PNG.
