Pangu Pati branch holds open forum


ONE of the oldest political parties in the country held a public forum last weekend in Morobe to prepare for next year’s national election.
THE Morobe branch of Pangu Pati (party) held its first open forum in Sibruk village in the Buang local level government of Bulolo last weekend.
The forum, according to deputy president Yamai Asepis, was to get views and feedback from the public and the party’s followers on its performances since its revival in 2014.
The forum attracted three former Morobe MPs, some intending candidates and party executives from neighbouring West New Britain and Eastern Highlands.
Former Morobe parliamentarians Kennedy Wenge (Nawaeb), Koni Iguan (Markham) and Ginson Soanu (Kabwum) gave their views about the party during the occasion.
Pangu parliamentary leader Sam Basil and his deputy William Samb also attended the forum and interacted with the public.
Asepis said Pangu, under the leadership of Basil, would take a new direction to put up strong candidates for next year’s national election.
“Your views and comments will be taken note of and the party will adjust and move forward. We will all work together to make Pangu great again,”Asepis said.
Basil said he had some differences with the Pangu executives but that would not stop him from fielding his candidates for the election.
Basil said he was a Morobean and knew Morobe politics very well.
He said he would endorse his own candidates if they met certain criteria.
