THE people of Anglimp LLG in Jiwaka last Saturday witnessed the launching of the Hagen South Students Association.
This association represents the 60,000 people of the Anglimp Constituency in the Anglimp-South Waghi electorate of Jiwaka.
The association was formed by students attending the University of Papua New Guinea, University of Goroka, PNG University of Technology, Divine Word University, Vudal University, colleges and secondary schools.
Several leaders, business people, politicians, intending candidates witnessed the launching.
Among them was Treasury and Finance Minister Don Polye, who officially launched the association.
Association president Jackson Polly said they formed the group to help develop people, communities and societies and to become the mouthpiece of the people to fight for a separate electorate and become part of Western Highlands Province.
The association accomplished its first mission last Saturday when Polye assured the people they would have a separate electorate and become part of Western Highlands.
Polly thanked Polye for assuring the people their request would be taken to the highest level of government so Anglimp became an electorate in Western Highlands.
He said this was a step forward for the association and members would work hard to accomplish other goals to benefit the people.
Polly said the aim of the association was to fight corruption and develop the lives of people and at same time address issues affecting them.
Polye praised the students for coming up with the brilliant idea to form the association.
He said under his new party policy he would announce this week, he wanted people to become successful and develop their lives.
Polye said the nation needed changes and people must be well equipped and trained so that they could drive development.
