12013 Electoral Commission Annual Report
Last year 2013 was another challenging year for the Election Administration Division of PNG Electoral Commission. While we had just had just completed the 2012 National General Elections and began settling the bills, we were confronted with another task of organizing and managing the 2013 Local Level Government and the Motu/Koita Assembly elections. This was a mammoth task as election was conducted throughout the entire country which required equal amount of resources equivalent to the cost of conducting another national general election.
22013 Local-Level Government Elections Report For Parliament
The 2013 Local Level Government Elections had attracted a total of 37,903 candidates - both female and male from all walks of life including losing candidates in the 2012 National General Elections - to contest the seats for LLG President and Ward Councilor nationwide. This huge increase in the number of contestants, many election observers say, was mainly due to the National Government’s decision to provide funding of K500,000 directly to the Local Level Governments in its efforts to improve service delivery at the community level.
