"NA failed to further reforms".

The National Alliance Party-led government failed to further reforms despite "swimming in money", Port Moresby North-West MP Sir Mekere Morauta has lamented.

Giving an assessment of the Somare Government's ability to carry on reforms instituted by his 1999 -2002 Peoples Democratic Movement government, the former prime minister said it was five years of wasted opportunity.

"In the last four years, the Somare Government has been swimming in money, engendered chiefly by high mineral and oil prices; in part by the reforms I introduced; and in part by the fact that Bart Philemon when Treasurer hid the keys to the safe. But we have not taken the opportunity given to us by these factors and pushed ahead with reform, “ Sir Mekere told students in a seminar at the University of Papua New Guinea.

While the Government has praised its handling of the economy and its success in keeping expenditure under control, the PNG Party parliamentary leader said the Somare regime did not institutionalise the fiscal restraint that became an economic management trademark of former treasurer Bart Philemon.
