NATIONAL Alliance parliamentary leader and Finance and Treasury Minister Don Polye was in West New Britain on Saturday to attend the first New Guinea Islands NA’s regional convention in a move to maintain solidarity and networking in the region.
Polye was received by three NA regional governors at the airport and was taken to the Kimbe Bay Hotel where he held series of talks with
all regional NA leaders and provincial executives.
The one-day meet was closed to the public due to the current political situation in the country.
Outlining the status report of the party, Polye confirmed that NA was well prepared for the Supreme Court decision on the East Sepik government reference to be handed down on Friday.
He said the current political situation was a great challenge to the government and the Alliance.
However, he said the party was an institution and was not owned by anyone and was more than prepared to consolidate relationship with coalition partners and deliver services with confidence and honesty.
Regional officials said the meet was to establish a system of guidelines and pattern of approaches that governed the party’s policies in order to strengthen its focus and strategies and outline the networking systems in place for each province.
