Polling starts at UPNG Waigani campus

Polling has started at the UPNG Waigani campus.

This comes after the Electoral Commission allowed for polling to be conducted today.

Polling didn't start until 1:30pm after ballot papers were brought under security escort to the campus.

Students were allowed to cast their votes using their ID cards as well as names according to the electoral roll.

At the time this report was filed, two hours remain before polling closes at 6pm.

The queues were also a source of frustration for the voters, as both male and female students stood in the same line.

Polling was supervised by professors and lecturers at the university.

1,300 ballot papers were brought again today to the University as per the names on the electoral roll.
