NA camp ‘on shaky grounds’

THE National Alliance led camp in Kokopo East New Britain is reportedly shaky.
While a regional leader of National Alliance flew out of the camp yesterday, the Highlands bloc of National Alliance Members with their leader Don Polye are reportedly not welcoming Enga Governor and leader of the Peoples Party, Peter Ipatas joining the camp.
Deputy Prime Minister Don Polye flew out of Kokopo yesterday into Port Moresby and was in Mt Hagen later.
Mr Polye was reportedly in Mt Hagen to pick up the newly elected member for Tambul Nebilyer Benjamin Poponawa, who went to the election as an independent candidate. However, reliable sources claimed Mr Polye flew out of the camp to seek legal advice from the Registrar of Political Parties on the Integrity of Political Parties and Candidates. That could not be verified by the Registrar Paul Bengo who was invited to the National Alliance camp in Kokopo to talk to the Members on the Organic law. Sources said the Highlands bloc in the National Alliance camp did not want Mr Ipatas to join them because he did not consult them before he joined the camp and also because he was vocal in campaigning against the National Alliance led coalition government during the election.
None of the Highlands candidates could be reached to verify this statement as the NA camp in Kokopo was at Warangoi, 30 minutes drive out of Kokopo.

I think Ipatas is painting a bad picture on himself. I am not a supporter, nor against any engan candidates. But with what Ipatas is doing right now to cross bridges is a show of his lack of stability, consistency, and integrity.

Whether rain or shine, he should have stuck to his guns regardless.

Ipatas was suspended in 2001 by the
Mekere gov. when Pundari was the DPM but he
sacrifised his intergrity and went to join PDM
and became the mining minister and dumped Pundari from
there. undari even lost his seat.
this time...I believe he is repeating the same
process again. I hope Chiko's research is valid.

There was a rumour going around during the election campaign that Ipatas had close ties with the old Somare all along. However, Don Poly was in Ipatas's way.

There was a tussle within the NA faction for who should be the official candidate for Enga Regional. The old Somare didn't want Ipatas to lose, while Don Polye strongly wanted to get Ipatas out, and likewise Ipatas wanted Don out.
However, the old fella won and officially endorsed Michael Yaipupu for Enga Regional who was welcomed by Ipatas because Michael was not a strong contender. Don Polye wanted Paul Torato to be the NA candidate because Paul was a strong candidate against Ipatas. Ipatas was only scared of Paul Torato not anybody else in Enga.

This lead to the elections when Don Polye rigged the Kandep votes, he submitted all the regional votes for Paul Torato and the Open votes for himself. This was seen during counting when Don was on 21,000+, Paul Torato was on 28,000+ votes which were mostly from Kandep, all other districts were yet to be counted except for a few Wabag boxes. One would question why didn't Don Poly put the Kandep Regional votes for Michael Yaipupu when Michael was the NA candidate and Don was the Highlands Deputy Leader!!!

There was also this rumour that when Ipatas was in court, the old Somare helped him out. It's from very reliable sources that, Ipatas bribed the judge with K1million. The only way to get to the judge was through old Somare's links. A very popular businessman in Enga and a strong NA man was used as the middle man....man with the briefcase!!

Some reliable sources from Kokopo has said, Don Polye stormed out of the NA camp as soon as Ipatas walked in and old Somare giving him a hug.

The grand conspiracy that I assumed was just that and couldn't be proven seems to be slowly creeping to surface...look out for more!!!

Integrity is something someone has to work for in life. Integrity is when someone puts acts according to his words, withstanding storm, snow, rain, earth quake, tsunami etc.

Leaders without vision will slowly tend to show weakness in their actions by undermining their own integrity. Integrity is vital for leaders. Leaders who undermine their own itegrity are selfish and indiviudalistic in thinking. They wont have their own people at their heart.

People who have the capacity to lead, lead with integrity as their cornerstone. They stand on their own rights and dont bow down to undue pressure.

As for the current state of affair, Ipatas has lost his integrity as a person. All of us were aware of his tough stand against the ruling National Alliance party. After his declaration he suddenly decided to move in together with National Alliance. Shows how shallow a person is. He cant stick to his guns, shows he does not have any integrity at all. It is a shame, Enga is being led by such a fool.

As for Don Polye to fly out of Kokopo, i think he has every right. Ipatas has slammed him in public. All of PNG knew about it because Ipatas and some of Don Polye's political enemies came out publicly in the media claiming that Don Polyes has rigged the election process. Ipatas was adamant in destroying Don Polye's name in public and now he decided to go behind Don Polye's back, side-tracking to make sure Don dont know about his moves and hook-up with the old frail Sepik man, who must have drilled him from behind. Thats, a trait for the Sepiks so the old man must have done a good job from behind on Ipatas.

Leaders without any integrity dont deserve my respect as an Engan Citizen. I dont have respect for old Somare because he never lived up to his words. He said that 2002 election was his last, and he will reliquish the leadership of NA to someone younger, but he never stuck to his guns, thats why i lost trust in him and i never respected him.

Personally, i dont have any respect for leaders who say something but act differently. They got no integrity at all, and they dont deserve my respect. As long as i live, i dont have any respect for Ipatas, Somare, John Pudari and Wenge. They dont seem to potray leadership qualities for other would be young leaders to model their characters.

They are not good role models for would be leaders. My thums down for such creeps who can go so low to satisfy their own ego at the cost of the people that they represent. Stand for what you belive in, dont budge when pressure mounts on you.

I think, life in general, thats the motto that we should live. Dont sell yourself for second best, go for the best and remain steadfast in your decisions, and let your actions portray your beliefs and words... Amen..

Firstly I agree with you cool_guy1 and your piece is something to be reckoned with. Secondly, to these people intergrity and clear conscience or any other word for that matter have no relevance and substance in them. These words mean nothing to them....when these words are spoken they are mere noise to their ears. There is a distinction between a noise and a word, to the rest of us intergrity is a word and we know what it is etc....but to the people you made reference to these are just noise.

Thirdly,Billy Graham (world's greatest evengelist) once said, big upsets and blunders happen to us when we thrust in the princes of this world, frustrations, unmet expectations, failed promises, lewa pain etc. However this should serve as a lesson for us to thrust not in the princes of this world but only in the God.

Ipatas teaming up with NA is nothing more than 'Somare's paigi arete pingi', taking Enga politics into NA. He preached about PP starting with six MP's from Enga but failed so miserably, not even picking up Wabag??? Let's just wait and see the distribution of ministries. DPM might go to Southern of NGI? Ipatas knows his politics well????
