PORT MORESBY - The Chairman of the Constitutional and Law Reform Commission, Robert Atiyafa MP, has just bought a two-page advertisement in each of the two national daily newspapers to publicise reforms in Papua New Guinea’s electoral laws.

Papua New Guineans have over the years voiced concerns on problems associated with electoral laws and processes and this is our chance to put in our own ideas for reform. I encourage everyone to contribute to the process.

There are twelve terms of reference indicated under the headings of pre-election, casting votes, limited preferential voting and electronic counting.

You can find more detail by going to the Commission’s Facebook page here and browsing through the information provided. It covers electronic voter registration, national identity cards, extra time for polling and more choices for preferential voting.

You can also find more information by emailing or or writing to the Constitutional and Law Reform Commission at PO Box 3439, Boroko, National Capital District.
