Prime Minister Marape thank Basil for Reviving PANGU Party

Prime Minister James Marape, has publicly thanked National Planning and Monitoring Minister and Bulolo MP, Sam Basil, for reviving the PANGU Party.

This is the first time the Tari-Pori MP and Pangu Party Parliamentary leader publicly thank Mr. Basil, after he along with half of the party members walked out of the party in 2017 with half of its members, following bad working relationship with the party’s executives.

Morobe Governor Ginson Saonu took over the party leadership temporarily after the fallout and eventually handed it over to Mr. Marape late last year, following his election as Prime Minister.

James Marape said this when officiating at the 32nd Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church at Boana station, in Morobe over the weekend.

Prime Minister James Marape, trying not to politicise the synod of the ELCPNG at Boana Station, excused the hundreds of Lutheran faithful, who travel in from around the country, and spent a few minutes to acknowledge Mr. Basil.

Marape reminded the party supporters that they are all indebted to Mr. Basil for the success of the party.

"While the party under the Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare brought about political independence in the 1970s.

"We are now aiming to achieve economic independence for the country," said Marape.

The only political leader, who publicly thanked Mr. Basil for his very important input in an important period of governance in the country, was Sir Michael, during the party’s 52nd-anniversary celebration last year in Lae.

Sam Basil is now the Parliamentary Leader of the United Labour Party.
