7th PNG Games Possible Deferral Due to Bad Weather

With only 42 days to the 7th BSP PNG Games to be held in Kimbe, West New Britain Governor Sasindran Muthuvel has flagged the possible deferral of the games, due to bad weather expected next month.

He said, discussions with the Host Organising Committee has led the team to agree on two possible months that the HOC have agreed on and are looking at, if the games should be deferred. These months are April and September.

Host Organising Committee Chairman, Ruben Kautu, said April and September are two potential months the committee has agreed on, if given the green light to defer the games.

Meanwhile Governor Muthuvel has asked the government to have the PNG Games postponed to September to coincide with the country’s 42nd independence. He says the deferral has nothing to do with elections or funding, and is solely because West New Britain has severe weather conditions that causes flooding and other related wet weather conditions that could interfere with the staging of the games.
