Engan leaders urged to bury their differences to form next government

WABAG: The Opposition stalwart and Kikori MP Mark Maipakai has urged the Engan leaders to bury their political differences to form the next government after the Election.
Mr Maipakai has taken a swipe at them for not rallying their support behind fellow Engan MP Don Pomb Polye to form the government twice, the first was during the Vote of No-confidence in July and the second was after the last Election.

Mr Maipakai said Polye had all it took to become the Prime Minister.
“Despite our age difference, I am loyal to him because he is honest, transparent and a highly qualified leader,” he told a huge crowd at Porgera in Enga yesterday (Saturday).
Triumph Heritage Empowerment, he said, recorded a victory of fifteen seats, a second largest coalition party, in the last Election.

He added that if the Engan leaders had sided with Polye, he would have been the Prime Minister.
“The law is clear that a political party, which wins the majority of the seats, has to muster 56 MPs.
“If it doesn’t do so, the one which consolidated the majority of MPs can form the next government,” said Maipakai.

The Southern Region’s deputy leader for T.H.E party admitted that some Engan MPs and public servants were badmouthing Polye in a hotel, saying with their intention that he would desert him.
“I told them that the Polye has all it takes to become the Prime Minister.
“He is an honest, transparent and a brilliant leader so I will always be loyal to him,” he said.
