Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has once again told us that PNC will win more than 40 seats and form the next government.

Or is it? Tell us all what gives you this absolute confidence. Have you got any special advantage over other can...

Former Prime Minister Sir Mekere Morauta today said that the Prime Minister needed to deal with PNGLNG landowner issues immediately to avoid shutdown of the LNG plant.

“I am ready to debate him any time, any place. I am sure the Leader of the Opposition, Don P...

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill’s free education policy is a fraud that is crushing the hopes and dreams of schoolchildren all over the country.

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill should not be making boastful statements, as he did this week, about his failed free education policy. He should be apologising to the nation’s children instead, and telling us how he plans to arrest the further deterioration of the system.
