PNG needs to maintain a stable and progressive Government and the ruling National Alliance party is undoubtedly providing that.
“It is very important for the country to have stability in Government to continue to deliver services to the rural masses at the district level, and the Somare Government is ably providing it,” Education Minister James Marape said at Lufa Secondary School in Lufa district, Eastern Highlands province on Tuesday.
Tari-Pori MP was in Lufa district this week at the invitation of his colleague and Lufa MP Yawa Silupa to launch a K3 million Rehabilitation Education School Infrastructure (RESI) programme and hand over new vehicles for the district.
Mr Marape said he was confident the NA party would be strong in the 2012 election and would return to form the next Government.
Mr Marape, who is also the leader of NA for the Highlands region, said the stability and progress the country was enjoying would continue for the next term of Parliament.
“We (NA) at the four regional (Highlands, Momase, New Guinea Island and Southern) level are competing to secure numbers in 2012 as it is important for the Government to continue stability,” he said.
Mr Marape appealed to the people of Lufa district to return current MP Mr Silupa, who is serving his second term in Parliament.
“The need for continuity in any political office is very important for efficient service deliveries.
“I appeal to you all to return Mr Silupa for services to continue in the district,” he said.
