PM O'Neill concludes campaign with promises of Enhance Services and Infrastructure to Remote and Rural Areas


The Prime Minister,  Peter O’Neill  has concluded the final day of 2017 election campaigning by visiting remote villages in his district of Ialibu-Pangia in Southern Highlands Province.

This included a visit to the Yoko Koya Council Ward, where he opened the new Yoka-Uro elementary school.
“I am here in your village on this last day of campaigning, to open your new school, because expanding infrastructure is of great importance for our government,” PM O’Neill said.
“We must keep building schools in remote and rural areas, we must keep building better roads and bridges, and we must keep expanding health services.
“Over the next five years, your PNC-led Government is committed to further improving lives for our rural people who had been neglected for decades.
“We have already made great advances in delivering infrastructure and services to remote and rural areas in our first term of Government, and we will expand these programs.
The Prime Minister said the 2017 campaign has been a time for PNC candidates to demonstrate to the people that we have clear and defined policies.
"The policies that we have presented to the people are working and we will continue to make them even stronger.
“For five years we have delivered on our core policies of free education, universal healthcare, improving law and order and building infrastructure.
“Papua New Guinea is changing, and with the support of the people we will continue to enhance communities around our country.
“Those in the opposition want to cancel free education and cancel free healthcare, they want to cancel District Services Improvement Programs and Provincial Services Improvement Programs.
“They will set the clock backwards on our country, children will be turned away from school if their parents cannot pay, and our country will go into decline.”
The Prime Minister congratulated candidates and members of the public who have taken part in elections in the right spirit.
“The approach that our country takes to elections has changed.
“While there were a few unfortunate incidents, caused by failed and desperate leaders, for the most part campaigning has been calm and peaceful.
“We still have some weeks of voting and formation of Government, and I call on all candidates and members of the public to continue to maintain the same calm and peaceful approach to voting."
The Prime Minister was visiting six villages today, beginning in Yoka/Kpya, then to Weriko, Undayapu, Kerapali, Tengai and Kalane. Photo/article: PM's Media
