Alotau Open

Weather poses challenges for electorate

23 teams in the electorate started the polls yesterday, while six more teams are expected to do so by Monday.

From these six teams, four are for the Daga Rural LLG and two for the Makamaka Rural LLG - the reason being late training, according to Alasana.

In general, he said polling commenced smoothly with no reports of security issues despite the delay in police presence at polling areas. Police should be dispatched to locations by today.

But there is a bigger issue for some voters.
