Mr Basil says the United Labour Party will work to improve conditions of Papua New Guinea workers and will align its policies with the PNG Trade Union Congress.

Registrar of Political Parties and Candidates, Dr. Alphonse Gelu, told NBC News, the party is not new, but is derived its name from the National Conservative Party.

Dr. Gelu says this process is allowed under the Organic Law.

Meantime, Dr. Gelu says there is no new increase in the number of political parties and the total remains 45 since the last national election in 2017.
