MuliMaip, i think you are being so naive and childish. This forum is meant for discussions on issues and people have every right under the constitution to express themselves - (Freedom of speech). I think, there are some validity in the discussions and disertions that are presented here. It is the same sort of commentary that you would expect to get from political analysts.

I know you are a die hard fan of Don Polye, so am I. After reading through all the threads on this particular topic, i dont see anyone trying to tarnish Don Polye's character nor his integrity.

All issues raised by commentators here are merely facts. This are lingering questions that still puzzle Papua New Guinea, and it is only those who are responsible who have the answers.

For instance, just compare all the informal votes from Kandep electorate to that of Other electorates in PNG. I believe electoral commission must have spent millions trying to pilot the LPV concept in Kandep. If so then Kandep people are far more educated in the LPV system than rest of PNG.

So you see, most commentators on this particular topic could not establish the links, and thats confusing them. So i believe if you have the answer you could clarify what really happened and how on earth was there no votes for some candidates, not many informal votes.. etc..

If you cant come up with conclusive answers for this questions (because it is this questions that people are asking in their particular posts) then i suggest you look for the answers and stop trying to become like someone who is uneducated and dont know how to resolve issues.

Back home or anywhere else in PNG, supporters of two candidates clash over issues as such because they are not educated and cant make educated analysis of situations. As for us who are participating in this forum are educated, and we need to discuss issues as educated human beings and cant take the supporters mentality in this forum and start being up-tight because someone has tried to point out the facts about someone you favor.

The fact of the matter is Don Polye is back, an Engan son who achieved greatness in Politics as a first time parliamentarian. He gets my support. The only answer people in this forum seek is, the means by which he came in. Mind you, if he won through vote rigging, as police are still investigating the returning officer for diverting ballot boxes.. then, i believe he was wrong. I knew Kandep people would return him with fair votes. He performed as a first time parliamentarian and all of Enga was behind him to return. All we are questioning is the process that took place during the polling.

If people were not allowed to exercise their democratic right to cast their votes.. then it is a very serious issue. I believe, that brings to disrepute a clean and good character, that takes time to build.

Hi KulGuy1,

I am sorry for upsetting some of you on this forum by my comments. I thought people would read my comments as just comments but to the contrary it did not go down well with some of you. For that I am terrible sorry and I take back all the grief my comments may have caused.

Secondly, I am not a Polye lover or more politely a supporter. I am not from Kandep and I never will be. Indeed I have lived away from Enga for the last 10 years and I don't know what it is like up there. I have no political affiliations to any individual or group with political interest in Enga as well as PNG. I have never voted in the last 2 elections in Enga. I believe in God, the rule of law and hard work. I have worked (I mean hard work) my way up the social hierarchy from a rural tribe of less than 3000 people in Laiagam to an aspiring enterpreneur and an agent of change and the private sector is my playground.

Don't think that I am happy with the results of this elections, the whole political system in PNG stinks. That includes Polye, Somare or any other politician for that matter. To me all of them are bunch of crooks who go in there with selfish ambitions. But when comparing them on a regional scale, Polye was one person who did had an impact on national politics. I don't know what will become of Polye in the future but I thought by reading on the papers, he was one Enga politician who did stand up for what is rightfully his on the floor of parliament whilst the rest of your Engan MPs used the media to raise what they should have raised on the floor of parliament. The people of Enga vote for leaders to represent them and speak for their rights on the floor of parliament, not on some paid newspaper or tv announcemnts and commentaries. That's the only thing I like about Polye for Kandep, Bob Danyana for Western Prov, Malcolm Kila for EHP etc. So it's not only Polye that I like but a group of MPS with that courage to stand up for their people on the floor of parliament traditionally dominated by a selested few from the coast.

Thus, when I said go to the courts....I meant that and in that I want to see justice being done and wrongs corrected regardless of whoever is on the receiving end. I am not on any individuals side and am sorry if you thougt I am on Polye's side. I believe anyone can make any comment or write on anything or topic but that does not necessarily mean that he/she is for or against that person or topic.

Thanyou for letting me know that some of you my fellow citizens are not happy with my comments. I will try my best not to do that again in the future.

Kind Regards
