Moresby North East seat

Moresby North-East officials protest over non-payment

The counting contingent took to the main Waigani freeway during lunch time today to demand for their allowances to be paid before the end of counting.

The group made a big scene in front of the PNG Electoral Commission office.

A supervisor for the Moresby North-East counting centre, Steven Kairu, presented a petition at the Electoral Commissioner’s office.

The document stated that counting for the North-East electorate will not resume nor finish unless the officials are paid their full allowances.
