Juffa introduces party platform

The People’s Movement for Change (PMfC) party is embarking on a nationwide voter education drive to allow people to find leaders than politicians in 2017 who can truly represent them in parliament.

In a special meeting with potential candidates on Thursday (10-11-17) in Port Moresby, party leader and Oro Governor Gary Juffa said voter education was necessary to find leaders to represent the people.

“Today we have politicians representing our people by literally packaging our country and selling it off for their personal benefits. We have political parties that organize huge fundraisers that ordinary people cannot afford. They sell tables to the well to do and foreign businesses that secure their future business interests with the government while small Papua New Guineans are left with nothing to feed on,” he said.
Juffa said PMfC is not just a political party but a movement that will change Papua New Guinea for the better and in the long haul.
He said his party was owned by the people and their strategy was to involve Small to Medium Business Enterprises (SMEs) operators and ordinary people to gather and support if they wanted change.
PMfC will organize public gatherings to gauge support from taxi drivers, bus operators, villagers, youth and elderly people to seek their views on how they think the country should be run.
“We will organize walk-in interviews and party member registration with any interested Papua New Guinean at various locations around the country. This is not early campaigning as we wish to inform people and create awareness so Papua New Guineans are well informed of the type of leaders they can choose,” he said.

He said PMfC is not about vote buying or excessive cash handouts to mislead and abuse voters to divert their attention. PMfC is about taking back the country from illegal foreign investors, tax evaders, money launderers, cash handout mentality, middlemen and etc. he said.
Juffa said PMfC is the only party that stresses more on illegal logging, illegal mining on the sea floor, laxity in the country’s taxation regime, land grabbing, illegal fishing, reserved businesses etc that no other political has been vocal on fighting against.
“We fear no one and we are prepared to take the country to the next level and our strength is within the ordinary people who rightfully own this country,” he said.
