Why this petition matters

Papua New Guinea's General Elections have been plagued with voter fraud, hijacking of ballot papers and boxes, shortage of ballot papers, errors and omissions in the Common Roll, voter intimidation, personation, underage voting, multiple voting and proxy voting, bribery and corruption of electoral officials and the list goes on. Electoral misbehaviour, malfeasance and electoral violence has escalated to new levels since the 2012 General Elections. This has resulted in leaders being elected to Parliament who do not truly represent the People and with little change being made for the People of PNG by these leaders. PNG is a third world country struggling with social and economic issues and this will not change unless its leaders are changed. The electoral process from the Common Roll to the return of writs must be safeguarded against corruption and crime. PNG needs biometric voting to eliminate many of the electoral offences and crimes that are perpetrated for fair and transparent elections and real representation of the People by their chosen leaders and a better future for the country. Biometric voting has been sporadically discussed since 2012 but no real movement has been made by the Government to implement this. Now is the time for PNG to demand change for change. Sign this petition so that we the People of PNG can come together and demand the change that our country needs and that we deserve. “The world is a dangerous place to live, not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.” - Albert Einstein
