OPPOSITION TO the so-called Maladina Amendment is entering a crucial stage as Parliament will sits this week.
The Amendment will change the law to weaken the powers of the Ombudsman Commission, protecting Members of Parliament from possible criminal investigation for fraud and corruption.
The ACT NOW! organisation is therefore urging all its members and supporters to get involved and have your voice heard.
What can you do?
1. Download a copy of the Community Coalition Against Corruption petition here and get all your family, friends and colleagues to sign - the petition includes details on where to fax or send the form once you have enough signatures
2. Email your to ACT NOW! here, telling MPs what you think about the amendments. ACT NOW! is writing to all MPs and we will include all your personal messages. So this is your chance to speak directly to all 109 MPs.
Latest developments in the campaign against the amendments include:
Transparency International announcing that it has collected 6,000 signatures to be presented to Parliament
A packed forum at the
The Ombudsman Commission submission to the National Executive Council opposing the changes
Remember, this is an important opportunity to have your voice heard and for you to make a difference.
If we can stop the proposed amendments then our MPs will realise they have to start listening to us, the people of PNG, and we can start to get our democracy working again. So this really is the time to ACT NOW!
Thanks for getting involved
