PORT MORESBY - Transparency International PNG will be among the organisations sending a team of observers to monitor voting during the Bougainville referendum that begins next week.

The team of eleven, made possible with funding from the European Union, will be divided into a group of six in Buka and a group of five in Arawa.

Deputy director of policy and advocacy, Yuambari Haihuie, says TIPNG will monitor the conduct of referendum polling by officials as well as the freedom of voters to cast their votes without fear or intimidation.

Haihuie said observers provide a critical role in ensuring whether the referendum will be transparent.

TIPNG will issue an independent public report next year to the governments of Papua New Guinea and Bougainville.

Meantime, the organisation is urging voters to report any cases of corruption to its hotline number 180 6000.
