AUCKLAND (Radio 95bFM The Wire/Southern Cross/Pacific Media Watch): AUT Pacific Media Centre director Professor David Robie speaks with The Wire host Amanda Jane Robinson in the PMC's weekly Southern Cross radio programme today about the Papua New Guinea general election.

David discusses the chaotic delays in polling and state of the electoral roll in some parts of the 14-day election - longest in the world -- and warnings of a "slide towards dictatorship".

The Pacific Media Watch programme also touches on cybercrime and the impact on media freedom, and the 51st anniversary of French nuclear testing in the Pacific.
