Why prolong Papua New Guinea election

Unlike most states, elections in Papua New Guinea are never held on a single day – this is due to almost 4.6 million voters live on six hundred islands. The urban population in this country is less than 20%, and many rural polling stations are in the highlands of the islands, which have to be reached by helicopters. Therefore, the election of 109 members of the National Parliament in the country of Papuans and Melanesians is always a difficult and difficult process. And this year they were further stalled for reasons of natural nature (some provinces had flooding) and for attempts to intervene in the process of expression of will by some of the almost 3,500 candidates.

And in several areas of Madang province of the country’s largest island, the voting process was halted because voters were afraid to go outside for fear of being attacked by sectarian cannibals . Police have arrested 29 people who are accused of killing seven local residents. All arrested – members of a sect that began its activities with fight against various kinds of knowledge who deceived sick people. However, justice fighters then believed in their special abilities to define sorcerers among ordinary people and set the goal of destroying them all. And to strengthen these abilities, new sectarians began to eat fragments of victims’ bodies. According to the information published in the press, this local community of cannibals comprises about five hundred people and is headed by the starosta of one of the communities. The head of cannibal police has not yet arrested, but among the detainees there is a 13-year-old teenager. Twelve people arrested will be charged with premeditated murder and all members of the sect are suspected of cannibalism.
