PNG Leaders betraying the country’s future generation : Polye

If leaders fail to correct their mistakes, they are betraying the country’s future, says Opposition Leader Don Polye.

“I am surprised to see that our fellow MPs in the government are pretending as if everything is just fine. “I see it as a betrayal of the next generations,” Mr Polye told a huge crowd in Porgera, Enga province.

He claimed that Prime Minister Peter O’Neill and his government have created many problems for the country and cannot solve them all during whilst serving their term in office.

“The well-being of the country and its people in the long future is determined by the decisions and conduct of leaders today.

“My observation of the conduct and performance of the government under Prime Minister Peter O’Neill is that he is creating a debt-burdened, stressful and unsustainable economy with our children struggling in economic recession in a night-mare of multiple social ills with declining human development index.

“The current government has no understanding of the future whilst it enjoys in debauchery of serving preferred business interests and running away from lawful pursuit,” said Mr Polye.

He said the Prime Minister was too blind to see the future, adding he has created so many problems in his time of Prime Minister that he cannot solve all of them within his tenure.

Polye said a strong commitment to rule of law and justice saves and secures the nation and her people, not just the police, warders and defence force.

“Therefore, leaders and grassroots alike must be subject to rule of law and Constitution without any resistance, evasion and obstruction to course of justice.

“Those leaders who defy the laws and breach the Constitution are definitely not leaders at all, rather they are opportunists,” he said. He said the signs and symptoms of the country’s cash flow problem were clear-cut.

Polye added that the laws and the systems of governance were bent and twisted for political convenience by those in authority, saying yet they do not seem to take to heed of the wrong path the country is heading.

He has urged them not to compromise their principles for their personal gain. “Leaders of advanced economies always shape a better future for the next generation.

“In PNG it is different so we have to stop it for a better future,” he said. He further said democracy had been eroding and that he warned that Parliament should fix it.

“Our ignorance will inflict a doomed and gloomy future for our children. “Our debt is more than K30 billion which has breached the legal ceiling under the Fiscal Responsibility Act,” he said.
