Chuave MP Wera Mori

Electoral Commissioner has the duty to distribute Ballot Papers: PM

Chuave MP Wera Mori directed a question in Parliament today to the Prime Minister asking him to clarify where ballot papers for 2017 elections would packed before distribution.

 “Is it true that Ballot Papers will be packed in Port Moresby and sent to the electorates’ unlike in the past where Ballot Papers were sent to electorates and packed in front of everyone, so everyone knew how many ballot papers were distributed to each wards based on number of population in particular ward,” Mori said. 

Chuave MP claims foul play by police

Chuave MP, Wera Mori, made the comment in a media conference in Port Moresby this afternoon.

He alleged that two vehicles, bought in 2010 from public funds under the administration of his predecessor, have been illegally claimed.

The MP said after investigations, one of the vehicles was impounded by Goroka Police last week but was released by a senior policeman attached to the CID division.         

“Out right act of stealing and fraud, unfortunately we have a senior police officer who should know better, but compromised his position,” Mori said.
