Election Manager, Rossie Pandihau, says the commencement of polling in the Province will depend on when polling in Simbu Province has been completed.
Polling in Jiwaka Province is scheduled for June 30.
Ms Pandihau said preparations for polling are now well on track however, the delay in polling for Simbu Province might affect them as well. This is because security forces in Simbu will move to Jiwaka once polling is completed in the former.
Pandihau says they are currently doing quality checks and pre-counting the ballot papers.
