PNG Parliament Speaker Pomat Resigns from PNC Party : Some Law Must Change

THE Papua New Guinea Speaker of Parliament, Job Pomat has suggested that changes to certain laws is good,including that covering the speaker’s duties, if it was in the best interest of the country and its people.

Pomat, who announced his resignation from the People’s National Congress (PNC) Party yesterday, said the move should indicate that changes are needed because of his conviction that the speaker must be someone neutral.

This conviction resulted from last year’s situation during the vote of no confidence on Prime Minister Peter O’Neill, where the attention swayed towards voting out the speaker before the vote on the prime minister.

“Based of my conviction, I am announcing that I am resigning as a member of PNC Party and will continue my role as speaker until this term of parliament ends, or whether they decide to remove me as speaker of parliament,” he said.

“Because if we say we adopt the Westminster system of government, whoever is elected as speaker that person must resign from which political party he or she is in and become neutral.”

Pomat also stressed that after 45 years of being an independent state, it is high time changes to certain laws must take place to benefit the country.

By saying this, Pomat also suggested changes to the law that gives the 18-month probation period for a government, where by after that period a government could be changed. He said this is one law that plays a major part in political instability as well in the country.
