Ipatas puts hands up as an alternative PM
By HARLYNE JOKU
PEOPLE’S Party parliamentary leader and Enga Governor Peter Ipatas has put his hands up to be prime minister if given the chance.
He indicated this at the People’s Party convention held at Amapiak International Lutheran School an hour from Wabag, Enga province, at the weekend.
Mr Ipatas’s aspirations to be PM were also supported by Party president Wera Mori who described Mr Ipatas as an action governor and leader who has qualities and the potential of becoming prime minister.
Lutheran Church leader Bishop David Piso and several church leaders also pledged their support for Mr Ipatas to more than 1,000 Engans who attended a dedication service at Aipos Rugby Oval last Thursday to celebrate Enga Day (April 17). They said Mr Ipatas had the qualities to become Prime Minister.
And on Sunday, Bishop Piso preached to his congregation at Irelya Lutheran Church that it was God’s plan that Mr Ipatas should one day become the prime minister of PNG.
People from the surrounding villages that Mr Ipatas and his delegation visited where presented with gifts of pigs, bananas, sugarcane and cartons of softdrinks.
Mr Ipatas said People’s Party was the first to lead smaller PNG political parties in hosting its first national convention at Amapiak Lutheran International School, about an hour’s drive from Wabag.
More than 200 participants from Bougainville, West New Britain, Sandaun, Gulf, Central and the Highlands provinces attended the two-day convention.
Mr Ipatas said the political convention was the first for the party a national election which indicated the seriousness of the party.
Highlights of the convention were the review of the party policies and adoption of party policies and guidelines based on the principle of bringing positive changes to the lives of all Papua New Guineans.
The People’s Party also resolved to accept the one-man PNG Advanced Party of Kompiam-Ambum MP John Pundari to amalgamate with People’s Party bringing its strength from three MPs to four.
Mr Ipatas supported by his party president Mori said at the opening of the convention that the People’s Party will not thrive on political rhetoric’s and lip service to Papua New Guineans while millions of kina were lost along the corridors of Waigani.
He stressed that the Peoples Party believes in a well educated population to advance the country into the 21st Century.
“The country needs educated and skilled human resources to stimulate and complement economic activities that will cultivate sustainable development for the long term,” Mr Ipatas said.
