Did you know that more votes were counted in the last election, by far, than there are Papua New Guineans who can vote? Our corruption is so rampant don't EVER expect the person who get the most legitimate votes to win.
The NA needs more Rimbunan Hijau money so that it can buy electoral officials when necessary. Please join the growing number of Papua New Guineans who want to change our country's name to KONGKONG NEW GUINEA and let our friends from Rimbunan Hijau openly write cheques to support however much money the National Asian (NA) party will need in the coming year to (1) buy votes, (2) buy electoral officials and ballot security, (3) buy MPs enough to form a government, and (4) buy their continued loyalty so there will be no votes of confidence and we can have a "stable government" for the following 5 years that will allow uninterrupted stealing.

COUNTING officials allegedly attempted to hijack the counting process in the NCD by-elections. A re-count of the ballot boxes revealed huge mess-ups with the original counts, which resulted in some candidates scoring more than what they should have scored while others polled less votes than they should have. According to scoresheets made available to the Post-Courier, the number of ballot papers from the Moresby North-East electorate was inflated by 330 votes. According to the returning officer Oscar Pomaliu, the re-check done by Electoral Commission staff also found 19 informal votes were also counted as formal, increasing the tally of individual candidates. Mr Pomaliu said yesterday these grievances were found in the Moresby North-East electorate and he hoped the same did not happen in the other two electorates. He did not rule out the possibility of his counting officials being bribed by candidates to be involved in this fraudulent act. The tally showed 19 out of the 23 candidates were affected in the scores one way or another. Of the 19, nine candidates had their votes inflated in the original count while 10 of the candidates had their votes given to someone else and their figures were less than what they should have scored.
