2017 Papua New Guinea General Elections: Election Observation Report
On 26 March 2019, Professor Betty Lovai, Dean of the University of Papua New Guinea’s (UPNG) School of Humanities and Social Sciences launched the Australian National University’s observation report on the 2017 Papua New Guinea (PNG) General Elections at UPNG.
The report – authored by Associate Professor Nicole Haley and Dr Kerry Zubrinich – provides an independent, research-based assessment of PNG’s ninth general elections since independence. The ANU was one of several groups invited to observe the elections. The 2017 election observation was the third such observation undertaken by the ANU in PNG, and is the most comprehensive observation we have undertaken to date anywhere in the region.
