Polling in Papua New Guinea’s NCD deferred

Papua New Guinea Electoral Commission has announced the deferment of today’s polling in the National Capital District until Friday.

The announcement was made this morning amidst confusion at polling centres.

Loop PNG reports all electorates in the NCD will now vote on Friday.

Polling officials raised concerns that their allowances were not paid last night.

There is also confusion in the electoral roll as most eligible voters cannot find their names on the roll.

Some candidates are also not able to find their names on the electoral roll.

The Electoral Commission apologised for the deferment saying this had to do with issues related to camping allowances for officials.

Voting is taking place in Papua New Guinea for the General Elections.
