Turi warns NCD candidates

NCD police are warning intending candidates for the NCD regional and open seats to be mindful of their supporters this Thursday as the nomination part of the elections begin.

NCD Metropolitan police commander Ben Turi says police have advised all candidates to not drive into Boroko with huge truckloads of supporters.

He says there will be road blocks around the Five-Mile area as well as the Murray Barracks Taurama junctions. This is to deal with traffic flow into the area.

Turi suggested for candidates to utilise public places such as the Five-Mile, Jack Pidik or Gordon’s Unagi ovals, to address their supporters after they nominate; and not outside the Electoral Office.

Police will be out in full force to ensure that there is no rowdy behaviour as well as smooth traffic within the area during this time.
