A FAMILY in Port Moresby has called on Prime Minister Peter O’Neill to warn his ministers to stop misusing their political status for their own advantage.
The call was made following the disappearance of a female member of the family who eloped with a known parliamentarian despite her parents’ disapproval. 
The family said such practice by a leader was unbecoming and should not be entertained as it set a bad example for government representatives.
The family of the girl said they did not expect a qualified person of such calibre to do such thing.
They said if the Prime Minister was serious about credibility and reputation then he should also be serious about his minister’s attitude and conduct as a senior public servant.   
They said they were concerned about the security and well-being of the young girl and were appealing for her return.
They said although the girl was 23 years old and could make her own decisions, they were worried that she may have abandoned her job as a shop assistant and the opportunity to complete her education
They believed man was married.
The family is appealing to the girl to return or contact them.
