Papua New Guinea’s democracy is out of track and its Constitution still being mocked.
Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare in his campaign around his home province – East Sepik says not all is good and that PNG has a lot to correct. He says the pushing factor in him to return to politics is to restore the country’s dignity.
In line with his party’s policies…the fight to restore dignity to the country’s constitution, the sole source that gives the country its status of democracy…is far from over for Sir Michael.
In his campaigns around the East Sepik Province, he talks about doing right the wrongs committed since August 2nd 2011, when government was changed by the O’Neill Namah team. He explains that it is not wise for Papua New Guineans to lose sight of the constitution but rather to fight for it.
He says he will return and form the next government in order to restore the rule of law; preserve the separation of powers and uphold the constitution…he adds only then will he leave politics for the young leaders to carry country forward.
Meantime, he is introducing the National Alliance party candidates and coalition partners in all the different electorates.
PANGU PARTY – Andrew Kumbakor, PEOPLE’S UNITED ASSEMBLY – Anderson Agiru, PEOPLE’S PARTY – Peter Ipatas, MELANESIAN PARTY and National party.
Sir Michael is currently in Western Highlands, he also visit Minj and Kundiawa yesterday. He was in Mul Baiyer yesterday supporting his candidates Sani Rambi and Simon Sanangke of the National Party.
