's message, "Polye to be PM" on Tue, Jul 31 2007, 05:35:26pm
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.

Well thoughtout threads. Today's news is that, the Highlands faction settled for second best. They want the speaker and deputy prime minister and other economic ministers.
Shows how easily we can be screwed by the Sepiks. Take a look at Peter Ipatas who declared war against NA. He decided to team up with his enemy.. My gosh.. such prostitute attitude of politicians. Man the Sepiks must have had their way in from the back.. lol.. they are good at that so.. the Highlands faction and Ipatas must have had a good taste to let go of their would be stand and side with the old frog..
Its bye bye time for some of them who have their eyes on the Prime Ministers post. Junior Somare is the PM in waiting. Somare will definitely give it to him, that will prove the Sepik Tsunami theory...
