PPC Warap said intelligence gathering is ongoing with analysis and classification of threat levels mainly with information on the presence of firearms. He said one identified threats are being neutralised.

“I do not want voters to accept bribery from candidates. I will not entertain any candidate to influence and hijack the counting process.

“I appeal to the general public to let the election process take its cause. Everyone must be allowed to exercise their rights in choosing their leaders without fear or intimidation.

“I appeal to candidates and their supporters to take ownership of the election process and behave responsibly to ensure we conduct this election in a peaceful manner,” PPC Warap said.
