Papua New Guinea’s oldest party, the People’s Progress Party, was on the campaign trail in Central Province at Saroa village yesterday.
Central Province is the corridor to Papua New Guinea’s economic activities and development boom. But it is facing issues of its land being taken over illegally by foreigners.
Nelson who had legal expertise dealing with PNG’s land and resources told supporters that PPP is a key partner to the next alternate government, and if voted into parliament, he will create policies and laws to protect their resources.
He said to effectively introduce development GST, increase tax on foreign businesses operating within Central Province, and encourage betel nut businesses to benefit the people.
Women Advocate, Dorothy Tekwie, said she was thrilled with PPP’s policies of empowering women leaders and addressing women issues.
