Ialibu-Pangia Returning Officer, Michael Ariando, told Loop PNG this morning that all ballot boxes will be extracted to Mendi today and tomorrow.
Ariando added that about nine ballot boxes in the remote area of Ialibu-Pangia will be extracted today to Ialibu station before transporting them to Mendi.
He said the weather pattern in the province has also affected polling, which resulted in the late extraction of the ballot boxes.
However, despite the late polling in some areas, voting has been peaceful since Sunday, July 2.
Polling in Southern Highlands has been deferred twice. The one day polling was initially scheduled for June 30.
