In reply to: Kill NA in Enga 's message, "NA has failed Enga - NA therefore has dug its own grave in Enga" on Mon, May 14 2007, 03:58:05pm

For those that do not know or are unaware, these are some of the colours of National Alliance Party.

1. To National Alliance - Sepik is Papua New Guinea
This is demonstrated by the rampant nepotism in appointment ministers, MDs/CEO's, Secretaries to Depts, Chairmans and Board Members to critical state institutions. A head count would make one's head spin.

2. The Mafia in Government departments squandering millions of Tax Payers money. Look at Finance Dept, Forestry amongst others. Somare himself is personally involved in endorsing and approving illegal payments to fake claims.

3. National Alliance turned a deaf eye to the striking Nurses, teachers and other government employees for better pay and working conditions. Instead, they rewarded themselves with 100% housing allowance and gave each MP a parting gift of K900,000.00 each.

4. National Alliance stifled the debating and parliamentary procedures by enforcing too many adjournments and sittings.

5. National Alliance is driving the National Debt up to the roof nearing almost K3 billion as I write. Most of these borrowing came from internal sources. So NA's contribution to the Nation's debt stands at K3billion thus putting the total national debt to K8billion.

6.National Alliance sold Ramu Nickel to Chinese state companies for peanuts.

7.National Alliance is extensively funded by the Malaysian Logging company - RH, a major destroyer of PNG's virgin forests. RH treats all PNG workers in logging sites as slaves and subhumans and abuse them with the support of PNG police.

.....the list is endless.

I agree with all the points you guys have made regarding the ruling party. Very impressive list... NA happened to have stepped in at the right time to ride high on Sir Mekere's hardwork.

When Sir Mekere passed all the reforms, he had all the criticism from political rivals and even ordinary people. His un-popular decisions voted his party out in 2002 General Elections. Even though those decision like, the Banks and Financial Institutions act, the Central Banking Act, Political Parties Integrity Act and the privatisation of PNGBC, were un-popular, he stuck by his guns because he was and is still the visionary leader Papua New Guinea needs.

NA stepped in to get the glory from those reforms. As a result of the reforms, Banks have operated more profitably and are extending to other remote ares, for instance, ANZ was based in major centres but now it has taken its operation to some provinces. Foreign Reserve levels were record high for PNG because of good commodity process and the Central Bank independence. For the first time in the history of PNG, there was no vote-of-no-confidence.

Fiscal discipline filters to the society as a whole, ir affects Foreign Exchange Reserves and consequently exchange rate, it also affect the small people. This government was running high on huge mineral tax collected from mining and petroleum companies as a result of huge revenue to to high international prices. As a result, government spendings have been contained. They continuosly were running budget surpluses, not primarily due to fiscal discipline, it was due the the huge windfall from Mineral taxes.

I salute Bart Philemon, who was also a visionary Treasury minister. Because of his vision, he start the Disctrict Roll-out program, which has seen postal and telecommunication, banking and treasury services being brought right down to the districts where the people are. Now someone can call from Laiagam and not waste bus fare and take the risk travelling to Wabag. I salute Bart for his initiative.

If you talk about NA.. SOmare has been fighting a lone battle to discredit Australia. Many people said, Sir Mekere's reform agenda's favor Australia, IMF and the World Bank. They were wrong as results have proven. We are living in a global village and we need to think globally and act locally. If we think and act locally, we will never make it anywhere. Each country needs each other to push them forward in their development agenda's. I am raising this point because, when senior Somare was asked to remove his shoe in Brisbane, he felt his pride being defeated. He was looking for ways to get even with Australia. He did get his chance when Moti was escaping from prosecution for molesting a child in Vanuatu. Somare assisted a child molester and a phedaphile to escape prosecution just to get even with Australi.

Somare is childish and cant manage this country. If he had stepped aside to let a young Papua New Guinean lead the party to the 2007 elections, then they would stand a chance. By the way it looks the old man has grabbed hold of power and cant let go, only death can do him apart with power.

My vote does not go to NA, i feel sorry for Don Polye, a first time parliamentarian, becoming the Deputy Prime minister. I hold high regard for him and i sure hope all Kandepens see this and show it in the ballot papers.
