He urged O’Neill to make a lasting difference and set a legacy for the future.
“We urge the government of O’Neill to make a lasting difference to this truly rich and beautiful country – to rid corruption and bring meaningful development. 
“We urge him to establish a credible government which will rid corruption at all levels and sectors, their systems and processes.
“We urge him to leave a legacy and set the benchmark for future governments to follow.
“This government is the people’s hope for a better future.
“There may never be a better time to start than this. By doing so your government is embarking on a major development revolution.”
Ton said that with three former prime ministers Sir Michael Somare, Sir Julius Chan and Paias Wingti elected into government there was strong support for young leaders to better run the country.
