Printing of candidate posters underway

The PNG Electoral Commission has started printing candidate posters, with 23 days left before polling of the 2017 National Election.

Electoral Commissioner Patilias Gamato told Loop PNG that the candidate posters for Momase, New Guinea Islands and Southern Regions are in print and Highlands Region will be printed soon after corrections are made. He said the delay is because of candidates’ photos.

The PNGEC candidate posters will be placed at the voting area for voters to identity their candidates and mark their preferences.   

Gamato said ballot papers are enough for the 111 Open and Provincial Seats, and the work of voter enrolment is complete.

The election campaign period will end on 23 June, with the start of 14 days’ polling on 24 June.
