Demands by ex-combatants’ for President Chief Doctor, John Momis, to resign, cannot be justified.
The president labeled this claim as undemocratic, following a letter that was issued, questioning his ability to act and serve the interest of Bougainvilleans.
He said though there were constraints within the Public Service and the ABG’s financial capacity the government had done all it can to strengthen Bougainville’s drive to reckoning its political destiny through and through.
President Momis said his government has done more in terms of infrastructure development and policies, to strengthen Bougainville’s political status.
This includes the improvement in relations with the national government, negotiating the K500 million Special Intervention Fund.
With the Bougainville General Elections around the corner, President Momis said, if they really desired a change in Bougainville then contesting in the elections is the way forward. It will offer a level playground for them all.
