Follow procedures, advises Gamato

Electoral Commissioner Patilias Gamato is calling on anyone aggrieved with the decision of the Electoral Commission to follow established constitutional procedures available under constitutional laws of PNG.

He issued the comments after Madang MP Bryan Kramer filed a complaint with the National Fraud and Anti-Corruption Directorate to investigate the commissioner on electoral fraud allegations.

It is also in response to lawyer Stanley Liria’s comments in one of the dailies on problems faced during the 2017 National Elections.

Commissioner Gamato said issues raised are subject to matters before the courts and anyone aggrieved by the Electoral Commission’s decision is at liberty to file joined applications in the existing court proceedings.
