EC to source NID data after it matures

PNG Electoral Commissioner, Patilias Gamato, says data will be sourced from the PNG Civil and Identity Registry when the organisation has matured.

Speaking at the Southern Region Consultation Workshop on the Civil & Identity Registration Act Review, Gamato said currently the office does not have all data the EC might need to prepare for the elections.

Gamato said this following discussions on the need for information sharing between organisations to ensure better coordination and planning, especially in elections to deter double and ghost voting.
