Jayapura, 17/6 – Jayapura police chief Alfred Papare held a coordination meeting in order to identify threats that may occur during the presidential election in July.
“There is an effort to boycott the election by political organizations and Armed Criminal Civil organizations ( KSB),” Papare said at Jayapura municipality office on Monday (16/6).
Attempts to disrupt the election include writing the word “referendum” at the back of ballots, writing provocative statements for a boycott call and disseminating short messages not to elect a president as the people of Papua already have had a president.
“Ironically, there is an effort to purchase weapons in the neighboring country for the group KSB in order to foil the presidential election,” he added.
Jayapura military command chief of staff Hendrik Mote said: ” The Military is ready to help the police in securing presidential election,” he said. (Jubi / Sindung/ Tina)
