PNG Opposition calls for PM Marape to resign

Papua New Guinea  Opposition is calling on Prime Minister James Marape to resign and focus on addressing law and order issues in his electorate and Hela as crime around the country gets out of hand.

Members of the opposition made this call when they met in Port Moresby to condemn the killing of the policeman and continuous law and order issues in the Prime Minister’s province.

Opposition leader Belden Namah claimed that crime in the country is spiraling out of control and investment has stalled since the new government came into power.

Mr. Namah also added that with the government’s subsequent cuts in the 2020 national budget provincial governments will not have much-needed funds to curb crime rates.

‘’The Prime Minister is incapable and lacks leadership following the mass murderers of innocent people, the gunning down of Sergeant David Hale last week and the subsequent chopping up of another policeman on Tuesday 22nd October 2019," Mr. Namah added.

Meantime, Prime Minister James Marape when visiting his province this week had said that his Government will ensure laws are changed, to ensure people who kill others should be arrested and sent straight to jail, and not allowed to pay compensation.

Mr. Marape said that compensation in Tari and Hela Province has resulted in trouble-makers hiding behind the scenes, and continue to cause trouble and destroy properties and take lives.
