O’Neill Concludes Final Day of 2017 Election Campaign

Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, concluded his final day of 2017 election campaigning by visiting remote villages in his district of Ialibu-Pangia in Southern Highlands Province.

This included a visit to the Yoko Koya Council Ward, where he opened the new Yoka-Uro elementary school.

The Prime Minister told the people at the opening of the school, that infrastructure will continue to be an important priority for his government.

He said he already made great advances in delivering infrastructure and services to remote and rural areas in their first term in government, and these programs will be expanded.

While critical of what he claims was the opposition’s plans to cancel free education and healthcare, the prime minister congratulated candidates and members of the public who have taken part in elections in the right spirit.

He also said that while there had been a few unfortunate incidents caused by what he described were ‘failed and desperate leaders’.
