In reply to: People's Party 's message, "Karpa Yarka Leading Lagaip/Porgera" on Fri, Jul 27 2007, 01:29:25pm

"Soon after his victory in Wewak last Friday, Sir Michael said he was confident of leading NA to forming government, for the last time."

When would the last time come for this creepy old frog who is taking the country down with him. He does not seem to understand, foreign policies blurting out at any country that makes comments on him.. full of pride and an arrogant old man who seemed to have lost his vision for this country.

According to the NA constitution, the deputy leader of a region who returns more candidates from that region automatically claims the throne. How can Bertha defend her dad, when she knows for sure that the stipulated guidelines make it possible for Don Polye to take the throne.

I fully endorse the move the Highlands NA bloc is taking. Most of the top jobs are held by Sepiks when Somare is at the helm. He seem to appoint Sepiks as directors, chairmans, secretaries in all job. Even he seem to appoint his own family members and depend those appointments with the same old slang "they are qualified people".. what about other Papua New Guineans. I think, he is trying his best to put his own son on the throne before he walks out of parliament with a walking stick. If his son takes the helm of PNG, he will be as arrogant as his own father. Take a look at what he did to Digicel. He used a non-existant law (because the law hasnt been passed by parliament) to revoke Digicels license. This has ramifications, Digicel has every right to sue the state in damages. Such unruly decisions can cost the state millions of kina. So like father, the son is arrogant also.

I think, if the country has to prosper, the Highlands bloc should keep to their demand for the top post and dont budge at anything thrown at them. They got the number, and one of the Highlands Politician, in this case Don Polye being the deputy leader of the party, and the current Deputy Prime minister should take the helm.

Somare if he is a genuine leader, a leader with integrity who has PNG in his heart, should let Don Polye lead and provide advise from the foreground and groom him. Leaders who build other leaders and take a back step and provide assistance, are true leaders. Power hungry leaders will always cling onto power until death does them apart.

I know this is not forthcoming, with Somare still trying to lead the party into parliament and become the prime minister. Then in his comments today said he will step aside after 2 to 3 years after identifying someone who is capable of leading. That shows he has no confidence in Don Polye who has served under him for 5 years and he should have already known what Don Polye has to offer and has offered. I believe this delay tactic is to find a way to put his son at the top post for him to lead. I think this, 2 to 3 years will be taken to convince all party members about his son to take over. I wont be surprised, if junior Somare takes the helm.

Maybe this is becoming like Bush family tradition in US. That can happen in the United States of America, but, PNG with lots of pride at stake wont happen. It would only be Senior Somare's wish, but, it will never happen, if the other MP's can figure out the ploy.

I salut the highlands NA bloc to remain put in Goroka. They should demand the party leadership and remain steadfast.

[> Subject: H'lands to push for party leadership

Post Courier p6 31 July 07

The Highlands Block in the National Alliance Party campaigning in Goroka is likely to push for the party's leadership and the top post.

This is likely to be the case with them having nine (9) members from the region while the Momase region so far scored eight (8), Islands secured four (4) and Southern Region expecting to score five (5) with Kokori MP, Mark Maipakai securing his seat and was expected to be declared late yesterday. Deputy Prime Minister and Kandep MP Don Polye is the likely candidate, with him securing four (4) of the six seats in Enga.

This push is strengthened with the decision to base on the constitution of the party which says, the leadership of the party will be taken by the region that brings in more numbers after the elections. With 100 seats declared, the remaining nine seats are all being led by members of other parties and not National Alliance candidates.

The ruling party is also understood to have different camps with the Momase bloc in Wewak with some independent members, the Southern Region Members in Port Moresby and the Highlanders in Goroka. Mr Polye told the Post Courier last Thursday that the Highlands bloc would put up its hand for the party leadership and the Prime Minister's post in consultation with the other leaders and the party executives . He said, they would be camping in Goroka and travel to Port Moresby.
