New security measures for ballot papers in Simbu

Provincial Election steering Committee chairman, Joe Tunda Nao, says the committee came up with the stamp for security measures.

Nao explained that the use of this stamp consumed a lot of time which resulted in the polling being deferred from yesterday to today.

“We have to do quality checks on all the ballot papers and stamp them before sending them to the polling venues.

“The same stamped ballot paper must be returned and not others apart from that.”

He added that the teams are ready to be dispatched to remote areas in the province.
