Opposition is constructive: Polye

Opposition leader Don Polye
Opposition leader Don Polye today assured the Prime Minister Peter O’Neill that the Opposition is constructive.

Mr Polye said the Opposition wanted honest and transparent leaders and leadership.

Polye has rubbished the call by the Prime Minister Peter O’Neill for the Opposition to be constructive, saying the writing was on the wall.

“The Opposition and informed citizens do not want leaders who manipulate the Police Force and the Ombudsman Commission in order to delay investigations.

“It does not want leaders who promptly disband Taskforce Sweep when it finds evidence possibly incriminating a national leader.

“It does not want meaningless Commissions of Inquiry asked to report on government payments to lawyers (including payments to Paul Paraka) which never report.  The Opposition wants honest and accountable leaders for Papua New Guinea,” he said when responding to O’Neill who called on the Opposition to be constructive.

Polye said that Members of Parliament have a duty to their people to be part of decision-making and to keep the Government accountable.

 He added that a Vote of No-Confidence could have been speedily undertaken – if the Government did not manipulate Parliament committees and timetables.

 “The team of leaders in the Opposition is quality and vibrant. Our founding fathers add value on our side,” he said.

 Their core business, he said, is national interest ahead of any other vested ones.

 “Our people know him very well that he is good at evading discussions and attack those who challenge him,” he said.

Polye said: “The fight is not between Don Polye and Peter O’Neill. The fight for us is to eradicate corruption, to strengthen governance, comply with rule of law, democracy and citizens’ constitutional rights.”

Polye further said the no-confidence vote was a check-and-balance tool for the Opposition to keep the government accountable to the people.

“We did just that for the best interest of the people.
