Limited Preferential Voting (LPV) system

Candidates Reminded Of LPV benefits

When discouraging negative campaigning tactics against other candidates, and especially the sitting Members of Parliament, Deputy ENB Provincial Administrator for District and LLG Services, Nicholas Larme, told candidates during last week’s voter awareness and candidate forums that they should promote themselves and fellow candidates.

He says the beauty of the LPV system is that, voters get three choices and instead of tarnishing other candidates’ characters, candidates should campaign together, to secure their primary or secondary choices.

Opposition opposes FPTP bill

Leader of the Opposition, Belden Namah said all parties in the Opposition have decided to oppose the proposed change to the Organic Law on National and Local Level Government Elections to introduce the FPTP.

“Opposition has invited Nick Kuman, the sponsor of the Private Member’s bill to address us, and he graciously did so and explained his reasons to the caucus this week.

“After examining his reasons we have decided that there is no time to deliberate this matter properly between now and the 2022 elections.
