PM O’Neill Welcomes Supreme Court Decision

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has welcomed the decision of the Supreme Court that will enable Parliament to decide if election nomination and petitioning fees will be adjusted.

The Supreme Court has refused the application by the Ombudsman Commission for an injunction that would have prevented Parliament from debating, deliberating and voting on National Election Nomination Fees and Petition Filing Fees.

The Prime Minsiter said the proposed amendments will strengthen democratic process to enable true contenders to stand for elections, and will help prevent the malicious use of the court system after elections.

The matter was in light of the proposed law to amend Section 103(2) of the Constitution and Sections 87 and 209 of the Organic Law on National and Provincial and Local-level Government Elections, was handed down by the Papua New Guinea Supreme Court of Justice on Friday, 3rd March, 2017.
