PNC Party-led coalition government is stable and intact, says PM O'Neill

PNG PM O'Neill (2nd from L) with Coalition partners 
Papua New Guinea Prime Minister Peter O’Neill says his People’s National Congress Party-led coalition government is stable and intact.

He said the revelations surrounding the resignation of Finance Minister James Marape did not affect Cabinet and the Government as he had “enough capable members to take over”.

“My Government is very stable and you can see from the numbers here, unless someone is blind,” he said.

He said most ministers had held the same ministries in the past seven years “to maintain stability and consistency”.

“I have deliberately done that so that I want them to gain as much experience as they can in those ministries and lift their performance,” he said.

“You can see the fruits of that experience now in the delivery of services, infrastructure, growth in the economy, creation of jobs for our people and attracting foreign direct investments into the country.

“Those are things the Government is doing today so you can see the experience is worthy and healthy for the country.”

He said he had not discussed with Marape his “lack of trust” comment. “I have absolute confidence in all our ministers.

“I have confidence in Marape’s ability and we wish him well in his future endeavours.”

Pangu Party leader and Minister for Finance Sam Basil also reaffirmed his party’s commitment to O’Neill’s leadership and that they would remain loyal until 2022.
