In 2012, polling was deferred to a day after the scheduled date for this electorate.
This year, polling has been deferred once more. However, this time, affecting all electorates of NCD.
Current NCD Governor Powes Parkop recalls the 2012 elections.
“And in terms of the counting, I was the last to be declared. When Peter O’Neil was elected as the Prime Minister, I was not yet a Member of Parliament. It’s like a bad dream coming back,” he says.
On Tuesday the Electoral Commissioner declared Friday June 30 as the rescheduled date for NCD polling.
