PNG says Pacific Games Council must relook bidding process

The Pacific Games council needs to relook its bidding process. This was the remark made by Papua New Guinea's  Sports and APEC Minister and Member for Moresby South East  Justin Tkatchenko.

Minister Tkatchenko said now that Tonga has pulled out of the 2019 hosting of the Games, this now opens the door for the council to test who can now take the games over in 2019. Such countries like Fiji and New Caledonia that have existing facilities to cater for all athletes and media.

“PNG however is unable to take on that role now as we will have to wait for the new government to decide after the elections,” said Tkatchenko.

Meanwhile, the commitment to assist Tonga on renovation of existing Stadiums and High Performance Centre totalling to a value of K45 million will be put on hold. PNGFM
