PNG politics
One political faction confident of forming the next government has sailed off to an island to await the call from Government House most probably later this week. The other faction is quiet. The nation waits – with bated breath.
Not serious
As soon as a winner is declared, he or she invites other candidates to join him/her to develop/improve the electorate. Yeah right! They cannot be serious.
Innocent party
Solar-powered street lights installed this year in Mendi town, Southern Highlands, brought much joy and relief as they allowed people to walk safely around at night. During the counting for the General Election 2022 at Momei Oval last week, losing candidates’ supporters took out their anger on the power poles by uprooting them. This one was dumped near the NBC Radio Station in Mendi.
Such a relief
What a relief to the nearby mega shopping mall when police removed people camped outside the Sir john Guise stadium counting centre for days who had been using the mall’s toilets, meant for only shoppers.
Cut prices
Customers are wringing their hands waiting in anticipation for cuts in internet prices with increased competition in the market. You there, Telstra?
Mutual trust
From a reader: I do not understand why in banks pens are always attached to strings. We trust them with our money and they cannot trust us with just one pen.
Food for thought
There is always four sides to a story: Your side, their side, the truth, and what actually happened.
Top quote
“Pangu is Papua and New Guinea United. It does not belong to Momase, or Morobe or Sepik or the Highlands. Pangu is a national party and stands for the whole nation and not one particular province or region.” – Lae MP John Rosso
