Manning: PNG’s security operation successful

This included the Prime Minister of India, the Prime Minister of New Zealand, and the United States Secretary of State, alongside visits from the leaders of Pacific Island countries attending the Forum for India-Pacific Islands Cooperation and the US-PNG and Pacific Islands Summit.
As the final leaders leave Papua New Guinea, Commissioner Manning has made the point that professional standards and capability in the nation's disciplined forces are evolving at a rapid rate.

NIP concludes security ops

New Ireland Provincial Police Commander, Felix Nebanat, highlighted this in a final briefing with the Namatanai team recently.

Nebanat said he was impressed with the high standard of professionalism displayed by every member of the joint security force, adding he was overwhelmed with the outcome of operations in general, despite minor hiccups that were swiftly dealt with to ensure the smooth running of the election process.

In a true esprit de corps nature, they served with honour and integrity to see this 2022 election for the province come to a conclusion.

Manning appeals for cooperation in NGE

He said news from around the country have been mixed, with some reporting quiet and peaceful polling whilst others reported instances of attempted hijacking of the election process as reported in Hela and the Enga Province.

Mr Manning has called on his officers to support one another during this time.

“This is a test for all of us. We do not have the luxury nor the option to give up. Be assured we are doing our level best to maintain the electoral process. We have many servicemen and women who believe in our country and are committed patriotic Papua New Guineans.
