PM's Office worried and desperate

The Member for Moresby North-West, Sir Mekere Morauta, said today stories circulating in the media about his alleged discussions concerning the forthcoming Vote of No Confidence are untrue and mischievous. "As both Governor Sir Peter Ipatas and Minister Mr William Duma say, I have not met with them or discussed the issue with them,” he said. “The false claims are obviously coming from the Office of the Prime Minister as part of a desperate campaign to prevent his removal, which is the overwhelming desire of Papua New Guineans. PNC – Peter Never Cares - is just trying to save his political skin by diverting public attention from his many shortcomings as a leader. “I have great professional an

PM should stand down over his corporate conduct

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill should stand down and submit himself to an independent external inquiry into very serious allegations of personal and corporate impropriety. The allegations concern his then wholly-owned construction company Wild Cat Developments Ltd and a bridge-building contract with the Asian Development Bank. The bank investigated the contract and found it to be improperly and incompletely implemented by Mr O’Neill’s company. The bank found proper tender processes had not been followed, rigging of the tender process, misrepresentation, financial management deficiencies, potential integrity violations, serious procurement irregularities, contravention of contract terms, and la

PM exposes PNG to international ridicule and criticism

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has exposed Papua New Guinea to international ridicule and criticism over the lavish staging of APEC and the failure of the meeting to make the customary Leaders’ Declaration for the first time in its history. “APEC has revealed to the world the corruption, waste and mismanagement within the O’Neill Government, and their devastating effects on the nation and citizens,” the Member for Moresby North-West, Sir Mekere Morauta, said today. “It has shone the international spotlight on Mr O’Neill’s crude and cynical attempts to play one nation against another, and his inability to understand the nuances of international relations and the dramatic geopolitical changes oc

PM should come clean on multi-billion kina APEC spending

“Prime Minister Peter O’Neill must come clean on total APEC spending. It is unacceptable for the Prime Minister to keep hiding the vast amount spent on the meeting,” Sir Mekere Morauta, Member for Moresby North-West, said today. “This money belongs to the people, not Peter O’Neill. “Public money is not his to do with as he pleases, wasting it on luxury cars and private parties for his cronies. "People have a right to know how their money is spent, and that right is backed by the law.” According to the Public Finances (Management) Act, Section 47K, the APEC Authority must be audited by the Auditor-General, Sir Mekere said. But there is no record of any audit. The report of the Auditor-General

Sir Mekere calls for people to support the Opposition

The Member for Moresby North-West and former Prime Minister, Sir Mekere Morauta, said today that the merger of PNG Party with the National Alliance was a very clear demonstration of the Opposition’s determination to do everything in its power to change the Prime Minister. “Papua New Guineans must now stand up and take the opportunity offered by this merger to talk to like-minded Members of Parliament on the Government benches to work with the Opposition to replace the Prime Minister,” he said. “We know that there are some very good Members on the other side, even in PNC, who want change as they know that this Prime Minister is not fit to run the country. They feel trapped by the Prime Minist
