NCD counting training off to slow start

Training for NCD counting officials got off to a slow start today at the Rita Flynn Sport Complex.

Although the scheduled start time was 9am, officials were called in at around 10:20am.

Officials stood in line while Electoral Commission officers called them in, one by one, for the NCD regional count.

Also at the venue will be counting for Moresby North-West.

While officials were let in, a few among the group began calling out for allowances.

Officials from other counting venues have threatened to boycott counting until allowances are paid.
