John Pundari's 9,000 vote difference with the nearest runner up is very suspicious.
John Pundari has been an absent figure in the Ambum and Kompiam sub-districts for the last 5 years.
It is everyone's knowledge that, he is based in Port Moresby running a Timber Yard at 8-Mile, at the mouth of the Moitaka Road and the Fuel/Transport company based at Badili, just in front of the TLI House, some security company and some asian connected businesses.
The road conditions in Kompiam and Ambum are very bad. 4
The schools and other government facilities are nonexistent there - or have fallen to deplorable state.
Certainly John Pundari doesn't come close to the calibre of Sam Basil, Powes Parkop or even his own Governor Peter Ipatas.
Can John Pundari himself or any of his supporters tell us why and how he is managing to get these kind of landslide votes please?
Maybe the Electoral Commission may want to shed some light on this phenomenon.
