PM slams Ipatas

PRIME Minister Sir Michael Somare has slammed two Highlands leaders for misleading the people over the country’s top post.
Sir Michael said Southern Highlands Governor Hami Yawari and his Enga colleague Peter Ipatas were only misleading the people as they did not have the numbers.
“They are lying to the people that they would become prime ministers in the next government,” Sir Michael said.
He said this in Mendi and Minj during his tour of the Highlands, last week, to officially endorse his National Alliance (NA) candidates.
Sir Michael said he had been prime minister for many years and would release the leadership for any capable Papua New Guinean to take over.
“I am still in charge and I still have the numbers to form the next government and those calling themselves prime ministers are only making noise,” he said.
The National Alliance has 27 sitting MPs contesting the elections with additional candidates boosting the potential number to more than 50. Sir Michael drew huge crowds in Mendi, Tari and Minj and said NA was confident of returning to power.
He said the NA-led government had set the pace for progress and it was now up to the people to retain their seats so they could continue the good work they had started.
Deputy Prime Minister Don Polye said those who wanted to lead the country should humble themselves before the people or they would become laughing stock.
Mr Polye told a crowd in Minj last Friday that the country was made up of different ethnic groups and leaders from the Highlands should be careful with what they said. “You cannot say you want to be the Highlands prime minister because this is a misleading statement and should be corrected,” he said.
He said he was a first-time parliamentarian and would not ask for more and was happy to be a member of the NA party.
Sir Michael returned to Port Moresby last Friday and returns today to complete his tour in Enga and Western Highlands.

Ipatas Fan; I agree with the facts you have stated; and there is more to these. From my observation after couple of visits to the sepik regions, he is actually sitting on a hot stone in his own province. He is just hanging on "Father of the Nation", giv'em last chance? I'm not into party tick-taks,though party is a key factor, but rather for quality leaders. So ya, maybe his (Somare's) arguement may fulfill despite the ill-decisions and profesional corrupt practices, so lets just wait and judge what happens after the election.Maybe then a politician, be it Tapi, Yawari, Bart, Namaliu, Pais Wingti, John Pundari, Somare, DOn Polye, etc can justify their public statements. My analysis is, if Somare loses, the party leader goes to Don Polye and things might turn out the other way around. But Tapi and Yawari to claim the Top Public Servant Post, its a laughing stock as described by Don Polye in Minj. If one would ask why I'm saying this, analyse from a neutral perspective. You will know why i'm saying this.

The Chief's comments are laughable. PM's position is not his granda's inherited titled. It's an open position up for contention in an equally open competition.

Somare failed PNG big time in many fronts. That's unforgivable. For those people who have no idea about them, here's a brief outline. You can list the rest yourself.



1. Appointed a junior Sepik guy to the position of Auditor General.

2.Refused to appoint a southern highlander who was a more senior lawyer to the be Anthony General. Fred Tomio has been acting for more than 4 years then dumped.

3. Mafia and grand scale thieving at the Finance Department.

4. Sold Ramu Nicket to Chinese without due consideration of landowners, working conditions, environmental laws and immigrations and labor laws.


5. Authorized 100% increase in accommodation allowances to MPs only, and then refused to entertain Nurses and Teachers accommodation/housing allowance from the current paltry K7.00 per fortnight.

6. Corrupting PNG Forests with full support of Ribunan Hijau. You'll be surprised to know that Patrick Pruitich from nowhere now owns many apartments in down town Port Moresby.

7. Regionalism, nepotism and favoritism is ripe and a big with NA in appointments of senior bureaucrats.

8. The US$200 Million Bond Issue with an American Banker. Bart Philemon refused to sign and entertain this when he was the Treasurer.

9.Reducing the parliamentary democratic and debating process into laughable and pathetic sessions with no real intelligent debates.

10. Put all the states enterprises into the hands of his son, Arthur Somare as if they are their family business enterprises. (Telikom, PNG Power, PNG ports, Air Niugini and IPBC)

11. Fiddled around with the superannuation fund Act 2000 by reducing the Housing Advance for members.

12.LNG Deal with InterOil


Now these things/issues are worth slamming and would make intelligent people LAUGH OUT REAL LOUD.

I totally agree with you Ipatas-Fan. That the Grand Thief Somare has ruined this nation and ran it like his own family empire. There is more to that list you have just stated. He knows that, now he is standing on tip-toes and his feet is not on the ground, a bit shaky for a old man.. hey..

Now, all Prime Ministerial aspirants have to do better in their own electorates or provincials. For those sitting MP's who are aiming for the top job, they got to come out with a clean book to lead the nation. Leading the nation is different from leading a province or an electorate, and we need people with clean books (i.e. never implicated in any-way) and proven track records, while serving as an ordinary MP. If such credentials are lacking, then, i think aspiring Prime Ministerial candidates should stop crying out loud.

In another post, i have highlighted the fact, that, sitting MP's should let their past actions as MP's determine their current aspirations to lead the province and the country. If they led the people well in the past 5 years, then they should not cry out loud. I for one feel that some people are aiming for the top post as an election gimmick. That kind of ploy will only fool idiots, but, those that know and felt their past leadership style will stand by their decision. Within the 5 years that those sitting MPs were in Parliament, the people felt their presence or non-presence at home and they already stood judged, and i know the ballot papers will speak out loud.

There are some sitting MP's who are currently felling shaky and are doing everything and anything to get in again. The people have the power right now during this election period and they surely will speak out their disatisfaction or satisfaction over a current sitting MP.

My choice for Prime Ministerial material to lead the nation for the next five years are.. two great reformist in PNG.. Sir Mekere Morauta and Bart Philemon.. These guys are great reformist and PNG needs reformist who have the vision to drive this nation forward. They have shown what they can do. I am happy that they signed a MOU to form the next government.. and i for one will vote for their candidates.. I think, we should vote along party lines, and not according to Moka or wantok lines.. We should think about the next five years... I beleive, such people like Rabbie Namaliu hasnt made any commitment yet, but, he sure will side with this two reformist and PNG will be in safe hands... If however, not one of this guys get into become the prime minister, the next 5 years will be hell. Paias Wingti has tried and has failed miserably, Somare has reigned several times, but he is more concerned about his empire, as for Yawari and Ipatas.. i think they have smeared their names already, facing corruption charges and found guilty..Such people with smeared images will always bring dis-repute to this nation, if they lead.. So you see, there is no other capable PM candidate.. then to have Sir Mekere and Bart.. take on that responsibility.. O ya... what about Don Polye.. i admire his courage.. but he is still a young politician without expereince.. he need to return back as an MP for the second and third term.. and then he will stand out tall.. At this time.. i dont think he is ready to handle that job...

Few of my thoughts..

Hey Cool_Guy1

I like your kind of comment you made here, yeah i reckon you should go home and speak out for it so that people can make their right choices, cos some people still don't know what party votes are and they will definitly go for individual candidates so better put on the news before its too late.

additional to your thought.
