Another MP joins Opposition camp

Another MP in the backbench has defected from the government ranks and joined the Opposition camp.
Opposition Leader Don Polye, on behalf of the coalition leaders in the camp, welcomed Obura-Wonenara MP MerraMinneKipefa into the camp this afternoon (Wednesday).

Mr Polye said they were happy that their number was swelling each day.

“He doesn’t represent an urban district in but an isolated area in Eastern Highlands.
“A government, which is in the making, will be formed by our people in the least developed areas. This new government is not just to develop Port Moresby only but to inclusively develop all the rural areas in the country. This is not a government for South Pacific Games only or for APEC or ACP meetings only,” he said..
He also extended his welcome to the Goilala MP William Samb, who is also from an isolated district, which has been neglected for a long time just like Obura-Wonenara.

“We have two highly qualified leaders but they represent their rural people of PNG. The new government will serve and deliver services to the neglected rural areas…not just only in towns and cities like the government has been doing.
He commended the MP-elect for South Bougainville as upon his election he swiftly joined the Opposition.
“He joined this quality team to form a new government. It means all these leaders are not only principle-oriented but strong as well,” he said.
