Jayapura, 6/4 (Jubi) – Police officers distributing election supplies in Keerom regency will have to walk to a village because there was no transportation, local polcie chief said.
Keerom Police Chief Adjunct Commissioner Pasero told tabloidjubi.com that his officers will spend two days on foot travelling to Towe Hitam Village of Towe Sub-district.
“They will travel for two days and two nights by walking and estimated to be arrived on Monday (7/4),” Pasero said on Saturday (6/4).
According to him, walking is the only way in the absence of the aircraft. Towe Sub-district can only be reached by Pilatus plane and there’s no helipad.
Pasero said Keerom Police have sent a proposal to Papua Police to support the delivery of the election logistic to Towe Sub-district. However, until now there has been no answer.
The Chairman of the Papua Election Commission, Adam Arisoy explained a plan is required to deliver the election logistics in a sub-district in Keerom Regency.
“But I have just not been able to contact the Chairman of KPU Keerom so far to talk about this matter,” Arisoy told reporters after attending a teleconference with the Commander of Military Region Command of Cenderawasih XVII at Cenderawasih Military Headquarters on Sunday afternoon (6/4).
Meanwhile the Chairman of KPU Keerom, Bonefasius Bao was not online when tabloidjubi.com tried to contact him.
For information, Towe Sub-district consists of seven villages i.e Towe Atas, Towe Hitam, Bias, Milke, Lules, Terpones and Tefalma. (Jubi/Indrayadi TH/rom)
