QUALITY checks on the electoral rolls in the Autonomous Bougainville Government will be completed this month, electoral commissioner Raitama Taravaru says.
The exercise was behind schedule but Taravaru is confident it would be completed by the end of the month.
Quality check for South Bougainville had been completed with the updated data sent to Port Moresby last week.
The electoral office began updating the rolls for Central Bougainville last Saturday. It expects to dispatch the data to Port Moresby by Friday.
The PNG Electoral Commissioner had set the end of the month as the deadline for all quality check exercises to be completed.
This is to allow time for the objection period,” Taravaru said.
