WEST Sepik people continue to elect backbencher governors and briefcase carriers.
I am not surprised after observing the last couple of Parliament sessions.
The West Sepik Governor never ask a question in Parliament compared to other first-time governors and Open MPs.
They were very vocal about their provinces, districts and issues affecting the nation as a whole.
With how technical and complex PNG politics has become, we need leaders who are able to stand up for people’s rights on the floor of Parliament. They must talk without fear or favour.
At the same time they must express their concerns sensibly.
We need leaders who are able to communicate well with other MPs, Government departments and donor partners to bring services to the people.
