2019 LOCAL LEVEL GOVERNMENT ELECTION

Com-PG-Mug-shot---09-March-2016

It is my great pleasure to officially announce that the 2019 Local-Level Government Elections commence with the issue of writs by the Minister for Inter-Government Relations Hon. Kevin Isifu and opening of nominations on Thursday, 25 April 2019 at 4:00pm.

Nomination period is for seven (7) days and closes on Thursday, 2 May 2019 at 4:00pm. Campaign period is for eight (8) weeks and starts from 25 April – 21 June 2019 at midnight.

Polling is for two (2) weeks and starts on Saturday, 22 June and ends Saturday, 6 July 2019. Counting period is for three (3) weeks and starts on Sunday, 7 July and concludes on Friday, 26 July 2019.

Writs for the 2019 LLG Elections should be returned to the Minister for Inter-Government Relations Hon. Kevin Isifu on or before Friday, 26 July 2019.

There will be elections for 6,369 ward members/councilors only in the 332 LLGs in 20 provinces. There will be no direct election of LLG presidents in the 2019 LLG Elections. Ward members will later elect LLG presidents in their respective LLG Assemblies or Council Chambers.

National Capital District and Bougainville will not conduct LLG Elections because they fall under other legislation.

Candidate nomination fee is K200 and the voting system to be used in the 2019 LLG Elections is the Limited Preferential Voting System (LPV) and not First-Past-the-Post (FPTP) voting system.

This is your election for your community governments and for your future. I, therefore, urge everyone nationwide to participate peacefully and support a safe setting for the 2019 LLG Elections because your contributions will promote good governance in our country Papua New Guinea.
