CHIMBU province will begin voting from tomorrow for the six open and one regional seat.
Provincial police commander Supt Augustine Wampe and provincial election manager Gore Kaupa met yesterday to finalise security and polling arrangements in the six districts.
They have made a special request to members of the Seventh-Day Adventist in the province to co-operate with polling officials and bear with the situation.
“Any queries from can­-
didates and supporters were addressed accordingly and they are all happy to go to the polls,” Kaupa said.
He warned Chimbu people in other provinces who had already voted not to come and try to vote again.
“Police will be setting up road-blocks to check trucks and buses coming to the province,” he said.
Chimbu provincial administrator Joe Kunda thanked Kaupa and Supt Wampe for the good planning.
Deputy electoral commissioner Steven Yakali is happy that Chimbu is finally to go to the polls tomorrow.
Meanwhile, police will be keeping a close watch on security hot-spots in Gumine, Kundiawa-Gembogl and Nomane.
