The Jayapura General Elections Commission (KPUD), Papua, was still distributing election materials to five districts on Tuesday.
Cipto Wibowo, an official with the KPUD Jayapura's finance and logistics division in Kelapa Dua Entrop, said on Tuesday that 700 of over 3,000 ballot boxes had been delivered by noon.
'We started distributing the election materials at 8 a.m. local time, first concentrating on the locations furthest away, such as Kampung Moso in Muara Tami district,' said Cipto as quoted by Antara news agency.
He said the election materials were sent from the KPUD's warehouse in Entrop. 'The distribution is closely monitored by officers from the Jayapura Police who will also safeguard the dispatch of the election materials to every district,' said Cipto.
He further said the KPUD Jayapura had asked the Jayapura Police precinct to guard and monitor more than 700 polling stations (TPS) in areas across the province's capital.
'We have asked the police to dispatch one officer for every TPS, who will be supported by two community protection [Linmas] officers,' said Cipto.
He said the KPUD was optimistic that all the election materials would be delivered by Tuesday evening.
According to official data, the number of voters in the final voter list in Jayapura is 343,456 while 2,000 voters were registered in the special voter list. (put/ebf)
