Polye urges young lawyers to uphold, defend the constitution


PORT MORESBY: At a time when the country’s judiciary system has been brought into question, following the arrest of a senior lawyer and one of country’s senior judges, the Opposition has called on all young lawyers to defend and uphold the Constitution.

Opposition Leader, Don Pomb Polye has urged young law graduates to charter a new path that is in the best interest of the country to defend and uphold the Constitution.

“We must not allow the rule of law, the Constitution, Organic law and the Acts of Parliament among others to erode,” warned Mr Polye at a graduation dinner.

Polye also urged young lawyers coming out of the law school NOT to deviate from defending the Constitution.

He said they must live by the principles of law which are derived from the Word of God.

“I am equally concerned about what’s happening to our country especially the conduct of certain people entrusted to uphold the laws of this land.

“We cannot call ourselves sovereign nation or an independent nation unless our laws are upheld, executed, enforced and the people made to comply with the laws,” said Mr Polye.

The Opposition Leader was speaking at a graduation dinner for a young law graduate in Port Moresby.

Wellington Kaum from Keas villiage in Enga graduated with the law degree and he has been accepted by Legal Training Institute.
