POLICE are still investigating the mysterious disappearance of Highlands regional electoral manager Tiane Openakali.
Electoral Commissioner Andrew Trawen said if investigations were still in progress during the election period, alternative officers would be engaged to manage the elections in the Highlands.
Openakali went missing in
March while on an official duty to Chimbu.
Trawen said the matter was in the hands of police.
Meanwhile, he said some intending candidates had been defying the law by conducting early campaigning.
