PPC Manus commends security personnel

Manus provincial police commander, Chief Inspector David Yapu, has commended his combined security personnel for their conduct during the national election in the province.

He said the mobile squad on Quick Response Force will remain in the province till the end of the month while other security personnel have been stood down from the election security operations.

PPC Yapu revealed that all polling allowances have been paid, however, their only issue is the counting allowances.

The security personnel’s allowance issue was taken up with the police headquarters and also with Police Commissioner Gari Baki whilst he was in Manus to observe the election.

The Manus PPC said the outcome of the national event was successful in the province despite numerous interruptions during polling and counting.
