He was one of the first members to be declared in the current national elections.
Mr Polye has won three elections on primary votes alone in the new preferential voting system, which was introduced in 2007. His first win was in the 2007 general elections and, then, after a successful appeal by an opponent, his second was in a by-election the following year.
The people of Kandep love this man so much because he has rought many infrastructure services to the rural areas of the electorate since 2002, when he was first elected to parliament.
During his period in office he has also contributed much to the nation as a member of parliament and senior minister. Mr Polye is one of the most influential, efficient and successful leaders in the country.

It’s an achievement and a blessing to the people of Kandep, Enga and Papua New Guinea. We believe the nation will see a new chapter through this great man.

Dirty politics by some rival candidates in the electorate to dispute his victory have to stop now because more than 75% populations of Kandep love this man.
