Kali: Public Servants resigning in 2017 for National Elections is too late and illegal

All public servants intending to contest the 2017 National General Election but have failed to submit their resignation, will face the full force of the law.

Personnel Management Department Secretary, John Kali says consequences are high for those who have failed to comply with directions.

This direction was for any public servant wishing to contest next year’s election to resign by October 20, 2016.

Secretary Kali has warned public servants of this unlawful act.

“And if you haven’t resigned, then don’t contest because it will be illegal. If you were to contest, you should have done on October 20, 2016. You are already breaking the law,” Kali said.

Mr Kali says that the law will still catch up with those who try to resign at the last minute.

This is because the law prohibits any public servant continuing to hold office after October 20.

“If you do win the elections, the law will still catch you because you entered parliament or win the election on an unfairly manner,” he said.

Secretary Kali has reminded public servants to put their acts together and try to read the laws that governs the public service machinery of Papua New Guinea.
