PM O'Neill thanks voters from Samarai- Murua for confidence in his government and re-electing Gordon Wesley

The Prime Minister and Leader of the People’s National Congress (PNC) Party, Peter O’Neill has welcomed the re-election of Gordon Wesley as the Member of Parliament for Samarai-Murua Open.
PM O’Neill extended his appreciation to the voters of Samarai-Murua Open for making an informed choice and giving their vote to support PNC’s development policies.
“I congratulate Gordon Wesley for his re-election as the Member for Samarai-Murua Open and look forward to him representing his people once again in the National Parliament,” Prime Minister O’Neill said.

“Mr. Wesley ran an informative and positive PNC campaign and the people of his electorate know that he will deliver on his promises.
“The People’s National Congress Party gives voters a clear choice as a Government that is delivering free education, universal healthcare, improvements in law and order, and building infrastructure.
“PNC policies, in consultation with our Coalition Partners, are delivering real change that is improving the lives of men, women and children around Papua New Guinea.
“The evidence of our work is all around the us in our communities.
“Because of PNC’s policies we now have an additional one million children in schools around the country. These are one million children from our grassroots families that now have a chance to learn mathematics and to read and write. Now, as they get older, they will have opportunities that many in their families never dreamed of having.

“We are delivering universal healthcare around the country. We know there is a lot of work to do, but we are extending basic healthcare to people who never had it before. This is keeping families together because less people die or have extended illnesses due to basic medical conditions.
“As a Government our policies have seen an increase in spending on law and order that is providing more police, a better resourced judiciary and improved rehabilitation for people who do go to jail.”
The Prime Minister said the delivery of critical infrastructure around the nation was enabling small businesses to trade more, helping government to better deliver services, and improving local community activities.
“The infrastructure of our country was allowed to be run-down for many years, and our Government has spent the past four years rebuilding.
“This includes roads, bridges, sea ports, airports, schools and teachers’ colleges, and many more buildings around the nation.
“All Members will be judged by the people of our nation in the 2017 elections and PNC and our Coalition Partners will proudly stand on our record of delivering on our promises.”
Mr. Wesley was declared by returning officer on 19 May 2016 and the writ for the Samarai-Murua by-election is anticipated to be returned on 27th May 2016.
