The National, Friday, June 10th 2011
A MAJORITY of the National Alliance party Enga branch executives have ruled the “special meeting to expel acting Prime Minister Sam Abal” illegal.
Deputy president and Engan businessman Chris Kandenge said yesterday the reported expulsion of the Wabag MP was “misleading and purportedly done by certain executives with self-interest”.
“All NA executives from the six districts of Enga are not aware of the special meeting that was hijacked in Port Moresby.
“I do not know about the meeting,” Kandenge said.
He said the NA Enga branch comprised 16 executives from the districts and Wabag, the provincial capital.
Kandenge said only four executives called the special meeting in Port Moresby to sack Abal.
“That meeting is illegal because they did not have a quorum,” he said.
He claimed all other provincial executives were behind Abal.
“It was news to us to learn of the expulsion of the acting prime minister,” Kandenge said.
