The National, Friday July 19th, 2013
I KNOW as a Western Highlander that no clan or tribe in the province has a total population of 10,000 eligible voters.
I was surprised to see that a tribe in Hagen Central has 10,000 eligible voters.
This figure comes from the Jika-Malakamb tribe in Hagen Central district.
It is just a small clan compared to other clans in Western Highlands.
If I am a member of Hagen Central and belong to a small clan with a total population of 10,000 eligible voters, I will certainly be be embarrassed.
This would be a criminal act.
This issue will create a lot of problems in our district over this year’s council and council president elections.
I ask the Electoral Commissioner to look into this and find a solution to this to avoid disaster.
Finally, I ask our educated Western Highlanders to do something so that this issue will not affect our people.
