PEOPLE of Western and Choiseul provinces have called on the national government and Electoral Commission to quickly set a date for their elections.
A Mr Andrew Koke told Island Sun Gizo yesterday that people are beginning to become frustrated since nothing has been heard from the government or the electoral office.
“It has been almost very outdated to say that nothing has been heard and what is going on at the top level for not quickly set the election date.
“While the calling of Western and Choiseul Provincial election is partly a matter of political judgment and timing.
“We are calling on constitutional and legislative framework who governs the electoral timetable and process to quickly officially set the final election date for people of Western and Choiseul.”
Koke said the Biometric Voter Registration Update and Revision Exercise 2017 has already been completed, and public had expected the dates to be announced soon after.
