PNG Govt Reviews Alotau Accord

Share the News

The government camp from Alotau, Milne Bay, is confident of retaining Peter O’Neill as Prime Minister of Papua New Guinea come Friday.

Boasting the support of over 80 members, leader for Government Business, James Marape, says they are committed to political stability.

He says for those calling for a change, particularly the politicians and the unions, they should wait until the elections next year.

Today, the government caucus concluded what they describe as an intensive day of review of the achievements that have been made through the implementation of deliverables in the 2012 Alotau Accord.

The accord is referred to as the foundation of the O’Neill-Dion Government work plan.

“The Alotau Accord is now an historic agreement in the history of our nation,” the Prime Minister said.

“This is the most forward thinking platform for any elected Government in the history of Papua new Guinea.

“This document, the Alotau Accord, clearly identifies key priority areas that we need to advance in our country if we are to deliver real and tangible change for our communities.

“We are not a Government that promised the moon, we promised reality for our people.

“We promised the reality that we could deliver in education, healthcare, law and order and infrastructure, and we are delivering on what we promised.

“It is fulfilling to see that we have achieved close to 90 per cent of our commitments under the Alotau Accord and we will deliver a full report in this in the coming months.”

Meanwhile, National Alliance party leader, Patrick Pruaitch, says the party is committed to being part of the PNC led government.

Minister Public Services and Member for Abau, Sir Puka Temu, also highlighted the Alotau Accord.

“During the formation of government, the theme of the Alotau Accord stated that this would be a Government of reconciliation, and the government has performed very well through political stability, achieving many milestones,” Sir Puka said.

“Although some of our former PMs have left us to join the Opposition, we will continue to deliver services to our people until the 2017 elections.”

Yesterday, the founding father of National Alliance, Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare, announced his allegiance to the opposition camp during a reconciliation ceremony with opposition members in Port Moresby.
