Southern Highlands Polling Peaceful

With election-related violence on the rise in the Highlands region, polling in the Southern Highlands was peaceful without any major incidents, says Provincial Police Commander Chief Inspector Daniel Yangen.

PPC Yangen said he did not receive any major incident and people have demonstrated that they wanted a peaceful, free, fair, safe and corruption-free election.
He said the candidates, supporters, and the public cooperated and behaved well during polling. PPC Yangen is expecting the same for counting leading up to declarations.
He was impressed when the people cooperated with electoral officials and security personnel to ensure the boxes were brought safely into Mendi Town for storage.
PPC Yangen said the boxes are now stored safely at the Mendi Police Station for counting.
