Kerema MP urges action on compliance report

Normal, Papua

KEREMA MP Pitom Bombom has called for action on a compliance report into the Gulf provincial assembly.
Mr Bombom said he had a copy of the report commissioned by the Government for action since 2007.
In a series of questions to Provincial Affairs Minister Job Pomat, he said the report revealed there was lack of governance, proper accountability, lack of corporate plan, no five-year provincial and LLG plans, non-appointment of provincial members, effectiveness in budgeting and planning, unqualified officers employed, non-compliance of important provisions of the law, fragmented and inadequate funds and lack of basic infrastructure.
“This report was published in October last year. According to the acting chief secretary it was tabled at the Central Agencies Coordinating Committee. After that it was forwarded to relevant departments and agencies to act on the recommendations.
“Can the minister inform the House and the 300,000 people of Kerema that the recommendations have been actioned?”
Mr Pomat said the issues raised needed to be addressed properly and he would respond in writing.
