PANGU-led PNG Govt to implement key reforms before 2022 elections

Papua New Guinea's Pangu Party led government will be implementing key reforms before 2022 elections. The reservation of women’s seats in parliament is one key reform agenda to be looked by the new Chairman of the Constitutional and Law Reform Commission (CLRC) before the 2022 National Elections.

Prime Minister (PM) James Marape, said the new Chairman and Member for Wewak, Kevin Isifu, now has a big task at hand before the elections and as a member of the ruling Pangu Party, he will deliver the party’s perspective, which include the women’s reserve seats.

“We will be also looking at women in politics, the representation of women in office,” said the PM.

“For the Pangu perspective, we have a very important proposal to put specific seats for women in the country. We are looking at higher level of regional seats, probably at four or five regions, designated as women only seats.”

To handle this task and other key reforms, Marape has high hopes in the new CLRC Chairman saying, “The honorable Kevin Isifu brings to us a wealth of experience, and brings that to our important constitutional office.”

Meanwhile, other key agendas to be looked at, include the system of voting, electoral reforms to modernize it with the bio-metric voting system and electoral boundaries review.

Isifu was officially sworn- in by the Governor General, Grand Chief Sir Bob Dadae at the Government House in Port Moresby this morning.
