PNG elections can be fraught. Here, Okuk declares his rights to campaign freely.
Kauage's description: Okuk stands on top of the trucks, he holds the flag. The other one is a policeman. When they campaign they sing out to the people. This policeman comes and says, 'hey, stop it big mouth.' They stop but Iambakey gets up and says, 'It's me, my campaign.' That's what he says. Okay, he's holding the flag , now the policeman wants to take hold of this flag. Okuk says 'shut up, I can go round and campaign.' He has decorated kina, put their flag up, some spears and other things and around they go.
