I believe its high time Polye and his highlands block persists with their lobby for the top job. They must not succumb to any fishy persuasions from the Sepiks if NA has to form the gov't.

On chiko's comment about Polye sacking Paul Itigon, well I got news for you.....I was living in Pom at the time and am telling you that it was the Public Accounts Committee led by Hon. John Hickey that stripped him off that acting position due to professional negligence and non-performance. One time, during the middle of the PAC sessions when they were having a recess....this Itigion disappeared and never appeared before the committee. He was removed from the acting position and was further declared that Itigon will never hold any top office again in the future.....had he won the Kandep open, there would have been a by-election anyway. Please don't make ludicrous accusations at people.

I authorise Don for PM if NA had to form the gov't otherwise I am with the Mekere, Bart team.

However much we may want Don Polye to be PM, the plain truth is that Michael Somare will not allow it to happen. Despite the party constitution explicitly stating that the region returning the highest number of candidates should choose the party leader, cunning Somare will circumvent it, as he usually does to the laws of PNG. He is exiting PNG politics soon and want to leave behind a legacy in the form of his very own son. That and various other selfish interests will spur him to hold onto party leadership at all costs. Unfortunately Don Polye will be a victim of Somare's stubborness. If the highlands NA faction and Somares faction do not come up with an amicable solution soon we will be likely to see Polye on the government's backbench.

If NA is invited to form the government, which is obvious from what has transpired, I'm afraid there will not be any other PM apart from the old pukpuk himself.

The Highlands NA MPs should lobby aggresively for other NA MPs and independents etc to give them number and hence bargaining power to wrest the party leader and PM from Somare and his band of power hungry faction.

Otherwise I think Bart and Mekere's alternate government is still ok for PNG.
