The selection process for Grade 8s and 10s in Lae, Morobe Province is on hold. 

Morobe Provincial Education Advisor Keith Tangui has told FM100 News this morning in an interview that the delay is due to inadequate funding. 

He says the recent ransomware hackers into the finance department has caused the office to close and this has affected the funding for the selection process. 

Mr Tangui says he’s unsure of other provinces going through a similar situation, but for Morobe, without funding, the process will not take place until the provincial finance office opens.   

In the meantime, he says Grade 10s marking is done but rankings and grading are yet to be recorded, while Grade 8s data entry still continues.
