Western Province

In an effort to ensure security and orderliness ahead of tomorrow’s counting, the Royal Solomon Islands Police Force (RSIPF), Correctional officers and Assistance Defence Force have taken charge of controlling the entrance points to the counting center located at Gizo Community High School in Western Province.

This is to regulate and limit public access to the center.

Only authorized personnel, including polling agents, counting officials, observers, and members of the media, are permitted to enter the counting venue in accordance with electoral regulations and boundaries.

The police officers have implemented tight security measures at the three road access entrances.

The first entrance is situated on the west side of the counting center, originating from the JF Kennedy Stadium and the second entrance is located at the Women Resource Center, while the main entrance is at the Gizo Catholic Church.

The committed officers are diligently carrying out their responsibilities to ensure a peaceful counting process throughout the province.

Meanwhile voters from Kolombangara, Ranonga, Simbo, Vonavona, Vella la Vella as far as Roviana, Marovo Lagoon, and Shortland Islands are turning up in numbers to wait for results.

Western province has nine constituencies.

The counting is only for the constituency election.
