Spotlight...what has Ipatas achieved for the last 10 years? Has he done anything for Enga? He tried his luck and that's why he is enjoying and resting peacefully on our young ladies. Is any of the candidate for the Enga Regional truelly standing to serve the people with his/her heart? Buddy, I doubt this as every candidate is trying for their LUCK. So what's the big deal with Parep? He is just like anybody else.

Politicians/Leaders are open for criticism by the people they represent. It may be true that Ipatas has not achieved anything in the last 10 years BUT how he got to his current state has never been luck, what ever he did, well he did to get there. Anyone who campaigns that he or she is trying out his/her luck this election, this is straight forward wrong.

By luck, no one is a leader. Therefore, they should not rule or govern people by luck.

All, come home and lets vote for the leaders we think are going to lead us in the right direction.

I totally agree with spotlight. Aspiring leaders who try their luck are not leaders. Only in a gamble, people become lucky. Leaders are choosen by the people to represent their views and needs in parliament.

As for Mathew Parep, he was my school captain at Passam National High School, and then at UPNG he was the National Union of Student vice president. He graduated with a political science degree. I am not campaigning for him, but since some people asked who Mathew Parep is, i need to highlight his credentials. After graduating from UPNG, i lost touch with him and i dont know his current status, where he was working etc?

From what i saw from his leadership style as a student, he sure portray some of the characters of the likes of late Malipu Balakau and Daniel Kapi. Most of his views, stemmed from socialist background. Such people like late Malipu Balakau, Daniel Kapi and late Iambaki Okuk had strong socialist views and they stood out among the crowd. Many people in PNG dont agree with socialist style of leadership, but, such people possess no nonsense approach of leadership. They provided necessary leadership for the people without fear or favor.

All Enga needs now is someone who can lead them without fear or favor. Enga needs a no nonsense leader, a leader who does not try to accumulate wealth and fame for himself but wealth and fame for his people.

All i can say is, some candidates possess certain qualities of leadership that Enga needs, and people need to be more careful in choosing a good leader for Enga. Most of us who are commenting in this forum are living ourside of Enga and cross our fingers for our people back home to send someone who will represent us in parliament.

WHATEVER...LUCK is the common game of politics in PNG particularly in the Highlands this days. Come back to Enga and preach what you preach. Otherwise, live your dreams and die with them.

KK,

Since you so consumed with the idea that its by Luck that a leader is chosen, I am of the opinion that;
1. You do not understand the qualities and values of being leader.
2. In the process of debating over this trival Luck issue, you've brought shame to Mr. Parep (Whom you think is trying out is luck).

Re-read what Cool_Guy1 as posted above.If you do no comprehend this level of discussion with respect to your view of 'Luck Political Leaders' ............. no wonder some of you are still lost.

People campaigning with the hope of winning with luck should not be considered for any political post in Enga. Such people will only drive Enga backwards due to little or no understanding of politics and how to go about providing the necessary environment for development in our province. As educated Engans, those of us who can read and write the whiteman's language, we should really understand politics better than our poor relatives back home. If we identify or think certain intending candidates are in it for luck which certainly is for their own personal benefits, then we should educate our people not to vote for them. These candidates will not develpo Enga. Instead they will be in to build their own empires just like all past candidates including Peter Ipatas have done.

Having said, I don't think Mathew Parep should be voted in to be Enga Governor. Of course I was a student at UPNG when Mathew Parep was the NUS president but with a degree and the little experience as the NUS president is insignificant for anyone to run for Enga Regional seat. I don't know where Mathew Parep has been employed and I don't what kind of public or private sector experience he has. IF he has some and if some of you know please note it down here so that we may all know.

Sapos nogat, the only way Enga can develop is to vote in the most suitable candidate out of the current field of candidates to be our Governor. Peter Ipatas has had his chance, it is now time for another Engan. A more educated and experienced ENgan to take over.

Well said, 61. I was not campaigning for Mathew Parep, people asked about him so i was merely pointing out his credentials. As for the latter part of his life, i really dont know his work expereinces etc after study.

It is up to our people back home to choose theirs and our leader, a leader who will represent the views of Enga as a whole, not someone who will represent his own views and that of his empire. I hope and pray that someone good is sent in this time. I believe in the current voting system. This current voting system is designed to put the right person for Enga.

So what have you guys (the so-called educated Engans) done for Enga and PNG? Just stop preaching about your wishes and dreams as they will never eventuate. You guys pretend to much. If you guys truelly have a heart for the province, why not you all get leaves (for those working) and break (for those studying) and come back to Enga and preach what you dream of? Education will never replace politics. Period!

Simply get out your sweet dreams and see the reality. Politics is a LUCK game after all in Enga and PNG. You muster more votes, you are a LUCKY man to represent the people.

Dreamers will always be dreamers. So guys, wake-up!

Its political season and we are talking politics but the challenge by KK for educated people to contribute to Enga's development must be supported by all educated elites.

Instead of wasting our and efforts on politics, I would want to discuss how we educated people can contribute positvely to Enga's development.

Perhaps, some non-political, genuie and credible guys should raise your hands in Enga so that the rest of us living out of the Province can provide whatever support to deliver much needed service to our people.

KK, I for one am studying overseas under a scholarship so would not be able to come to Enga to guide the people I have influence over (my family) to vote for he right candidate. However, as an educated Engan I cannot just seat on my bum and expect things to fall from the skies and be perfect for Enga. The least I could do for my province is to discuss politics itellectually on public forums like this and the newspapers so that those who are able to read can take note of this message. And maybe make the right choice come election day. You have a good point there however people like you and me should not think like our people at home. You are supposed to an educated person, think like one and influence your less privileged people in the right way. By talking on about luck and all these nonsense tells us that you have no maturity and even if you do what you are saying just defeat the purpose of your entire education.

"So what have you guys (the so-called educated Engans) done for Enga and PNG?"... very good question KK... What we have done and are currently doing does not warrent us to take a break to go and vote, because if we do, we wont be serving our beloved country. Why should we take leave, if we are able to vote someone in to serve us in Parliament from where we live right now? For your information, this is a National Election, it is not a provincial election. So you see, all elected members that are voted in either from the corners of Telifomin, or from Port Moresby will represent the views of Papua New Guinea.

Decisions made in Paliament does not only affect Enga.. it affects the entire nation.. so you see.. if i vote someone in from Port Moresby, i have my say in the election. I dont need to take a leave to come to Enga to vote.. because i can cast my vote for a Papua New Guinean in Port Moresby.

Now, to your previous question, what have i done for Enga and PNG, thats something i personally have to answer because i dont want to post my CV in a public forum. I believe the same question goes back to you.. What have you done for Enga and PNG? you answer that question yourself.

Boasting and self righteousness are campaign tactics used by would be and aspiring candidates and personally i dont want to dwell too much on it. I'd rather let my action speak for me than to say, what i have done for PNG.

Whether it be a student or a working class Engan, i believe every citizen of this beloved country has done their part in contributing to nation building. I believe in the goodness of every individual, there is no such person as a rascal or a thief being born. It is what people choose to do, and rather not what they are born to do. So, for your question about what we did for Enga and Country? i believe the mere fact that they are Papua New Guineans and Engans.. that is a great contribution... Economist call it Labour and it is one of the greatest input in the production process.. so you see... every individual that is born into the Province or this nation.. has his or her own way of contributing to this beloved country of ours..

Let me broaden your mind with an example.. Can you say a bettelnut seller in one of the markets in PNG is not doing anything for the country? If we look at it with a narrow mind, we can say.. he or she is spoiling the environment with pollution.. but.. in a broader sense.. that bettelnut seller is providing a service to another Papua New Guinean who might not be growing bettelnut because he or she is from the Highlands where bettelnuts dont grow. A Highlander is satisfied and the person who is selling bettelnut is satisfied.. Both are Papua New Guineans.. Dont you think.. the bettelnut sellers is not providing service to a fellow Papua New Guinean? At a narrow scope you might think that way, but, the broader view is that.. both have contributed to informal sector business growth.. Both have served the nation..

With this example at hand.. a student in Australia or at UPNG is doing something for PNG.. Human resource investment is by far the greatest investment for Enga and PNG as a whole.. So you see.. they cant just leave their studies on hold for elections.. wherever they are.. they can cast their votes.. for PNG..

I beleive you need to get out more into PNG than to stuck you head in the sand..

"Stuck my head in the sand and being immatured?"" hehehe! Check yourselves out! Whether you are studying overseas or working, accept where you are and do not jump into making your wishes and dreams known on this forum. Who dare cares about you if you guys cannot come home to Enga and preach what you preach here? We are mere pretenders being carried away the world of IT. Being educated and working in a good job does not play any role in Engan politics. Let these political guys do their politicking and you guys concentrate on what you doing so that you guys will excel in your fields. Politics is for politicians and not dreamers who are pathetic students and working. It really doesn't make sense so guys, BE REAL! LUCK is anybody!!!

Cheers

I met Mathew Parep often on International Transits. So what is he up to? Where does he live? I doubt this kind of leaders!

Anyways, those bac home please educate the our illiterates and uninformed parents and relos. Be honest!

You say Mathew Parep is questionable. So, who is your honest and trust worthy candidate for the Enga regional seat?

It is common knowledge that a Buka fellow by the name of Noah Musingku was involved in the U-Vistract saga. I have never heard of a Mathew Parep in connection with this group or any of its dealings. IF you have any information you feel we should be aware of in respect to Mathew's involvment, please do enlighten us. Mere speculations are serious matters, especially when the person you have mentioned is on the verge of exercising his democartic right as a candidate for the regional seat. Therefore, I suggest you provide some evidence to substantiate your claims. Otherwise, please stop the personal attack. You either vote for him or against him. In the future, I would appreciate if you can keep petty remarks to yoursef.

Please, Please, Please,

If any one know of Mr Pareps whereabout during the last five years, you better speak up ol else Mr Parep is a definate looser again this election.

Every Candidate is trying out their luck and Mr Parep is no exception.

Someone has to come up with Facts, if we are going to Vote in Leaders who credentials and experience.

I will definately cast my vote to him, should he posses those qualities of what we are looking for.

If he's contesting under the school mangi's platform again......he, he, waist of time.

Peace
