PNG elections to feature on SBS
By KEVIN PAMBA
AN hour-long film on corruption, tribalism and thuggery during the 2007 national elections in PNG will be aired on Australia’s SBS television at 8.30 tonight.
The film titled PNG: The Rules of the Game by Walkey Award winner Thom Cookes looks at the problems in the election process and claims that attempts to clean up the undemocratic mess in the PNG election process has achieved little.
The film follows three of the 37 candidates in the Eastern Highlands governor’s race, incumbent Mal Smith-Kela, female candidate Julie Soso and coffee stalwart, Jon Yogiyo, as they set out into the challenging world of PNG politics
The film also features Electoral Commission legal adviser John Nonggorr.
An online review says: “The underlying problem is closely associated with the history of PNG tribal warfare . . . tribes discuss fighting at length . . . which ultimately ends in death. This has, to a degree, been transferred to the political system and the power play of PNG politics.”
A DVD of the film is selling at A$38.45.

The picture of Shane
on the road again
tra lala
I will tell ya
that at Irelya
tra lala
Shane was in pain
at the idea of loss
not gain
and of fat Papa
with a cuppa
and a small supper
and a notion to go insane
tra lala
