Commerce and Trade Minister, Wera Mori, defects to Opposition

Share the News

Commerce and Trade Minister,  Wera Mori, has  announced his move to Opposition in the latest defection before Parliament sits  on Tuesday.

Wera Mori is the latest cabinet minister to leave the PNC-led coalition citing his dissatisfaction  and lack of confidence in Prime Minister Peter O’Neill.

Mr. Mori named  various reasons including the lack of opportunity for Papua New Guineans, the UBS loan controversy and the bad economy.

“I think it is time we take stock and take measures for the benefit of Papua New Guinea. Papua New Guinea is a resource rich country and we are not getting the benefits.

“I want to see all the structures revised and all the revenues be brought back to Papua New Guinea.”

MPs who were present commended the move by the  Commerce and trade Minister who is expected to formerly tender his resignation later in the week.  Social Media commentators  who responded to the live video of the news conference  expressed that they are still skeptical of the announcement given the previous   return to the coalition  by Forest Minister, Douglas Tomuriesa.
