As of the 23/06/07, the situation on the ground in Enga for the Governor's seat is as as below in order of preference,

1. Paul Torato
2. Governor Ipatas
3. Fr Paul Kanda
4. Mr Yai Pupu
5. Poko Kandapake
6. David Lambu

This assessment is after a 2 week trip around the province. The only places not visited for this assesment are Paiela in Lagaip Porgera, Maramuni in Wabag Electorate and Yengis in Kompiam Ambum. Personally prefer #6 and #3 to be 1 & 2 but the situation is as such. I suppose it's a bit too late to convince the people but let's hope the results of this election are for the betterment of the people of Enga.

This is interesting news indeed, Kii Yan!

I suppose my earlier observation of Torato as THE leading candidate for Enga Governor 2007 was not erred.

Peace..

Kii yan don't agonize yourself. Even at this stage, we have roughly about five (5) more days before the actual polling. Thus, it would be still premature to make a perfect prediction. You never know what people are like. People can change their minds impulsively or prudently at the very point of their biros during the ballot paper session. Expect the unexpected but for a good cause of course.

Your preferences given above are ideal ones for some of us. Maybe y/our preferences may take precedence. Who knows?

All we can to do is to keep our fingers crossed and hope for the best. Good luck to all those ones who are going to cast your votes on Saturday. Remember to vote wisely!

Oh and by the way Kii yan, what about Philip Nere for Wabag Open seat? Any information on where he stands now?

Paul Paken Torato remains hotter than ever as his popularity rating blows the roof!! On Saturday May 4th, I personally witnessed Paul Paken Torato approach an NA rally at Laiagam Station with his diehard supporters from Sirunki, Laiagam central and headwaters!!

How do I know?? Because I was the one who led the Pyain group unto the field after Philip Kikala led the Mango, Kera Lagaip, Walin, and Tia tribes.

I tell you, Paul P. Torato means business!!! Long live Paul Paken Torato!!

Like I said, no need to get too emotional and be hasty at this stage.

It does matter who wins or loses for the betterment of our province thatís why we are open-minded as to who is best and who is not. And who is hot or cold. As long as the person who gets in there gives a total face-lift to the province and weed out all the corrupt practices being rooted. That is the bottom line and most of our concerns. If Paul Torato can do that then fair enough.

But again, remember to expect the unexpected!!

Good luck!

Paul Paken is unboudtly Enga's choice at the moment. We intellectuals who use this forum may have our dream of sending in a better leader but at the end of the day those people back at home are the one's deciding come this Saturday (30 June 2007). Word on ground is: Paul Paken Torato is coming in to represent you and me in Parliament. It's time we get together and convince Paul Paken that he need us to drive Enga forward. I can take this proposal to PPT when he wins.

And pls note...WEST Enga is sending in PPT for a change!!!

KK, let me correct you on a very important thing that you have overlooked in your comment. If Mr. Torato wins, he will not only represent West Enga. He will be the regional MP for Enga Province. I have noted in a previous thread that, this mentality of dividing the province into west, east, south and north should not be tolerated by all Engans.

I for one belief in a united Enga because we are united by nature in all aspects of life. Maybe this modern era, with all the political rhetorics have brought into our Enga Society this so called west, east, south and North Enga. Enga will be represented by an Engan son or daughter. I for one feel disgusted about the constand promotion of sectarianism among a naturally united province, by laguage, culture and traditions.

As for the regional MP, i sure have heard from people back home that Paul Paken Torato is hot, however, Engan politics is unpredictable, last minute manueovers can turn the table around. May the best man or woman represent our dear province.

I don't think Torato is a bad choice by the people of Enga. Infact, wisdom grows with age and Torato should serve the people of Enga for the better. My only concern would be the retention of the corrupt public service at Wabag. After Torato's victory should come a sweeping change to the public service machinery in Wabag that has been blatantly abusing the Enga people's money. I don't blame Ipatas only, he has been ably assisted in his corrupt dealing by the likes of Samson Amean, Senso, Charlie Bana, Pato Potane and the entire treasury division in Wabag. Corruption is schemetic and systematic in Wabag, we need a regime change and that should be Torato's number one priority. This has to happen if services are to reach the outermost parts of Enga.

Cool Guy 1,

Point taken...I have the same mentality as you have for a united Enga. However, my point was to challenge the other parts of Enga (apart from West Enga who are behind Paul Paken Torato) to cast their votes to Paul so that we will remove Ipatas. If the rest of Enga does not vote for PPT, West Enga is sending him and that's it! Afterall, PPT will still be the governor of Enga regardless of where he gets his vote! But Engan politics is about regionalism, which has been the case so far. You & I will never change that unless we change ourselves!

Awain Yutange (Nao etao neyeno), we will definitely wipe out all these guys occupying the Ipatas Center when PPT gets in. PPT will be advised to revoke all those grade 10 dropouts that have been declared public servant and are paid for literally doing nothing. PPT is in for a change and we will do that.

PPT for Enga Governorship!!

Now in a new twist of things, Ipatas seems to have lost some flavor and is slowly losing his placing on position #2. The main reason he seems to hold his position is the pride of Engans where they want to see one of their own being the PM of this country.

Yai Pupu seems to be picking up in Kandep where he originally did not have much backing and may well displace the priest for third spot. However Torato seems to hold his position at #1 with the latest support changes around the Minamb Valley. Traditionally a Ipatas strong hold due to family and business connections. I shall provide the next update in 2 days.

Oh & Kii 1aku, our tribesman Philip does not seems to stand out. It seems to be Mr Abal at this stage with strong challenges from M. Yakali from the Upper Lai region and Mr Potane folowing suit. A. Wangae seems to be pickly up here and there and may well be # 4 at this stage.

Interesting observations but I'd rather see Ipatas number 4 or 5 then on #2 or 3. It's probably in his pocket like he has been saying if still has the popularity and support as is indicated in Kii Yan's assessment. I hope the gap between Torato and Ipatas is big, otherwise we are doomed again. Number 2 at this stage for Ipatas is like saying he is coming home big time.
