Candidates bio data form deadline on Tuesday

The deadline for intending candidates for the 2017 National Elections to submit their personal bio data ends at close of business on Tuesday January 17, 2017.

All intending candidates must fill out the Form 29 - Candidate Bio Data Form from PNG Electoral Commission’s provincial offices or PNGEC Headquarters in Port Moresby.    

Electoral Commissioner Patilias Gamato said the early submission of candidates’ bio data and photos is an administrative matter to assist PNGEC when printing candidates’ posters for all polling booths nationwide.

"This is to ensure that when candidates nominate, their data is already in the system, thus making PNGEC’s job easier taking into consideration an anticipated high number of candidates for 2017 elections," he said recently.
