Don Polye On PNG Economy

This was made known in his address to the media, during a media conference, where he said that the people of PNG ought to know, and must now see the truth of what is happening and refrain from being blinded to the realities of the nation’s economic state and its affairs. 

According to Polye, the PM was in breach of the constitution that required approval from parliament to secure financial loans, of substantial amounts, and get approval for funding of capital expenditure projects of any kind.

“Current political trends under Prime Minister Peter O’Neill have developed to the contrary by averting the strategies carefully structured within the confines of those prudently designed policies of socio-economic development,” he said.

The Kandep MP highlighted that politics was seeping through the cracks of society, with the functioning and operations of institutions being politically interfered with at an alarming rate. This also includes systems of governance, where correct processes and procedures are being overlooked and ignored.
“O’Neill has deviated from strengthening and allowing state agencies to perform their independent duties to that is being dictated thus compromised,” Polye stated.

He made this statement as a member of the opposition and as a concerned Papua New Guinean; stating that he was not doing so, as a political agenda but rather because what he was claiming are factual and ought to be raised and brought to the nation’s attention.

Polye further claimed that strategies that were fundamentally placed to empower institutions, as well as delivery systems and the implementation of policies are being compromised, brought about by the PM’s attitude in going against the norm in doing things outside of the system.

“It’s not only growing and developing the economy but the concern is on the sustainable management of the economy in which the Prime Minister is not prudent on that because of the sales of percentage of Air Niugini, PNG Power limited, the UBS Loan interest payment, the purchase of Gas turbine Generator by LR group who is ranked black listed in the World Bank and other countries and so on.” Don Polye said.
T.H.E Party leader said that he has chosen to come out in public with his views as he is afraid for the economy of the country; he urged Papua New Guineans to be weary of what was going on and what the country is being put through.

He added that corruption is rife, going from bad to worse and crippling the nation; this has become government, he said; it is corporate corruption.
