Sengi Laki, a long-time resident of Port Moresby’s North West electorate has seen families suffer from lack of basic services throughout the entire twenty years he’s lived and worked in the electorate.
This year, he says he has the backing of these families and more, to run for the Moresby North West seat in order that families in the electorate get the best of these basic services.
Basic services like water, health, education, roads, electricity are what most families call for, for Members of parliament to deliver to them. It’s not something new, in fact it’s lacking right throughout the country; election in, election out, the same issues of lack basic services is always top of the agenda.

Independent candidate Sengi Laki, a police officer by profession has lived and worked in the city for twenty years, and throughout these years, he says, law and order, health services and water are some basic services that families in Moresby North West need, however, they have received them in a long time.
