Jayapura, 30/6 (Jubi) – To safeguard the presidential election on July 9, the Papua Police have sent personnel to areas that are considered vulnerable.

Papua police chief General Inspector (Pol) Tito Karnavian said some police officers have been dispatched to some polling stations (TPS).
“Some members are already shifting to the polls. For example, from Pegunungan Bintang  to the difficult areas. Regarding the possibility of disturbances by rebels, we also anticipate and strengthen our forces in some areas,” Tito said on Monday (30/6).

The vulnerable areas include the Indonesia-PNG border, Lanny Jaya, Puncak Jaya, Yapen, Paniai, Tolikara and  Jayawijaya regencies. Furthermore, he said, every police station has also been coordinating with military units in their territory.
“Regarding the threat of a boycott by certain groups, it is not very significant because the group who  issued the call for a boycott is not clear. We also perceive that  the group to be small and will not influence the public,” he said.

He also has ordered every police chief to evaluate their own territory and the potential areas where conflicts could occur.
“The police chief reminds them to report back if more police are needed or coordinate with military commanders,” he said.  (Jubi / Arjuna/ Tina)
