Recount for Chimbu regional must be done in Kundiawa says PNG Police Commissioner Baki

THE RECOUNT for the Chimbu Regional Seat must be done in Kundiawa and not Lae says Police Commissioner Gari Baki.
Mr Baki said this following a decision made by the Electoral Commission to do the recount in Lae.

“It is my view that we do the recount in Kundiawa simply because of the fact that there are security issues that we need to give considerations to,” Mr Baki said, adding that anything can happen along the way if the ballot boxes are taken out of Kundiawa and driven on the highway to Lae.
Three additional Mobile Squads including a senior police officer from the Police Headquarters will be sent to Chimbu to oversee the Security Operations during the recount.

Commissioner Baki said it is the Chimbu Regional Seat and the people of Chimbu need to see that the counting is done in Kundiawa. He said the problem of one province must be solved in that province and not taken into another province.
Commissioner Baki said that the experience learnt from the 2017 Southern Highlands counting was a bitter experience, in which properties were destroyed and lives lost and this must not be repeated again.  Police Media
