An intending candidate for the 2017 National Elections says the next big thing elected leaders must do, is to save PNG’s falling economy.
Max Kamba, who is contesting the Yangoru-Saussia seat in East Sepik, has strong views about how the national economy is being managed.
Kamba is among 16 other candidates contesting the seat, currently held by Richard Maru. Despite being a first timer to politics, Kamba is optimistic of unseating current Trade and Commerce Minister, Richard Maru.
Kamba believes he has the backing of his people. He will run under the New Generation Party flag, led by Opposition strongman, and current Goroka MP, Bire Kimisopa. He says the next lot of elected leaders must address the economic struggles the country is facing.
In an unrelated election matter, the silence over the status of the economy has disappointed the head of a leading bottling water company. Achilles Peni told EMTV News, Government Departments are struggling to pay their debts, which stands around K56,000.00. He says government’s ignorance is a worry for local businesses.
The bottling water company has downsized its workforce, as it struggles to keep its head above water. Outside politics, Peni says the next Government after the Election will struggle to build the economy.
