Transparency keen to improve electoral process


TRANSPARENCY INTERNATIONAL in Papua New Guinea says it hopes to partner with the new government immediately after the election to improve the process for future polls.

In the first week of two weeks of voting many of the faults anticipated in the electoral rolls have shown up.

Lawrence Stephens of TI PNG said, in his personal experience of Kairuku-Hiri in Central Province, there are double entries and names missing from the roll, while there is evidence of electoral officials not following the proper process.

He said, like many things, PNG doesn’t pay enough attention to the state of the electoral roll.

“And the view of TI is that immediately the dust settles we would like to work with government, work with interested people, to find a way to stop this stupidity which ends up with so much confusion at each election,” he said.
