Carl Okuk, the son of one of PNG’s past prominent leaders, said the people of North East in Port Moresby need a vibrant voice on the floor of parliament.
Speaking at a campaign rally at 9 mile, Okuk called for a change in leadership.
He challenged the people over the development of the district office and how people have struggled in seeking help from those in power.
Okuk is up against 51 other candidates, 6 of whom are women. For Okuk, he believes Moresby East electorate has a vacuum in its political leadership.
Okuk’s campaign trail has targeted small communities in the North East electorate.
Okuk, who is contesting for the first time, says people must vote leaders who will serve the full five-year term, and bring change.
Less than 13 days remain before the polls open.
It has been a quiet campaign period for candidates in Port Moresby.
City Police told EMTV News that no major crime or political related violence has been reported.
