Parliament Reform to Unite PNG

Share the News

By Stanley Ove Jr – EMTV News, Port Moresby

Parliamentary Speaker, Theo Zurenuoc, has brushed aside critics of his move to reform the parliament saying the aim is to unite all Papua New Guineans.

Zurenuoc was heavily criticised after he removed a number of traditional totems in the chambers of parliament, something that sparked outrage from Grand Chief, Sir Michael Somare.

However, in an interview, the speaker said he is not attacking the culture of the country; rather he is trying to unite it through a common ideology.

“I am not attacking our culture, I am trying to unite the country, and I believe the Christian faith is one way we can unite the country,” Zurenuoc said.

On his referral to the Ombudsman Commission, the speaker said nothing has been done to date.

“I am yet to receive any notification from the Ombudsman Commission on my referral to the Ombudsman Commission,” Zurenuoc said.
