A valid point!, however, I personaly wouldn't align or see any Engan educated elite working with Don Polye after knowing him very well and him being a close relative of mine.
During his past 5yrs as Kandep MP, a couple of educated elits from Kandep did work with him, some as first secretary to his ministry and several as research officers, however, they didn't last very long, before the last election, all of them were ousted for whatever specific reason I don't know, but talking to a few of them, showed the same sediment. Don was arrogant and very gealousy in nature, he wouldn't want anybody else to be higher/wealthier then himself.
A good example, you may probably heard of Paul Itiogen who was the former Chairman for CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) but for a short while, he was knocked down although Paul was Don Polye's first cousin. This was the very reason why Paul Itiogen challenged Don in the election.
For this, you'll notice that people would deter from being his associates after learning of Don's inner self.
On the other note, the Somare family will never give the leadership position to somebody other than their own family. The PM post will be bestowed upon old Somare's own son - Author Somare after the 3 years which is what the PM indicated today in the papers.
The old fella is going to hand over the PM post to his son since a loop-hole in the law can deny any re-election of the PM when somebody retires. The incubent has the capacity to hand over the leadership to whoever he wishes within the coalition.
Bye the way, the Sepiks will never ever give their leadership to someone else because they've initiated a lot of ill-conceived corupt dealings that they want to wash clean and see to a dead end before somebody else surfaces them.
Otherwise, "Keaster" your idea is not bad!
