Polye Refuses Deputy PM’s Resignation

Sacked Treasurer and Member for Kandep, Don Polye, has not accepted the resignation of Deputy Prime Minister Leo Dion to join the People’s National Congress Party.

Mr Polye said he will seek legal action against members of parliament resigning from respective parties without following proper processes before resignation.


Mr Polye has written to the registrar of political parties that the members who have joined PNC party are still active members of his party.


He said the MPs, including the Deputy Prime Minister and his deputy party leader Leo Dion, have not followed due processes before announcing their departures from THE party to the People’s National Congress Party where the Prime Minister, Peter O'Neill,  is leader.


Other MPs who have abandoned his party include Douglas Tomuriesa, Delilah Gore, David Arore, De Kewano and Benjamin Poponawa.


He will also be seeking legal advice to clarify this issue.


In the meantime, he appealed to the Prime Minister and members of the National Executive Council to immediately stop challenging the work of law enforcers.


Mr Polye made reference to the letter disseminated to media outlets nationwide by Justice Minister Ano Pala, concerning the legality of the K71.8 million Paraka Lawyers’ legal fee, saying it is misleading.


He said the PM and NEC should rather take actions that will protect the country’s socio-economy and democracy from further deterioration.
