I BELIEVE that the death penalty is the only answer if PNG wants to go forward.
It should be introduced to deal with crimes such as drugs, robbery, murder, human trafficking, money laundering and many others.
I believe the major concern is corruption which is evident in all sectors of our society.
The leaders or parliamentarians who will be elected in the general election must address the corruption problems.
It should be the first item on their agenda when the new parliamentary session begins.
The MPs should come up with tougher legislations to tackle rampant corruption.
They should not follow the footsteps of our previous leaders by benefiting from corrupt practices and other abuses.
The previous parliamentarians or law-makers seemed to ignore corruption because they also wanted to get rich.
Looking at the current elections, it appears that candidates are prepared to “do or die” as they fight to get elected, thinking that once they are in parliament, they will get rich overnight just like the previous bunch.
A lot of revenue is flowing into the public coffers due to the country’s economic boom.
It is time the leaders legislate constructive corruption laws to completely eradicate corruption.
If this is not done, the country will go to the dogs.
