Temu confident of overturning Somare’s rule

Flag OPPOSITION LEADER Sir Puka Temu will lead another attempt at moving a no confidence motion in the Somare government when the PNG parliament meets the week after next.

Sir Puka has said the opposition is confident the vote of no-confidence will succeed and he has begun to outline some of the opposition's major policies.

He said he will focus on the needs of the 50 percent of school-age children who miss out on basic education every year.

“A government that invests in its human resource is a good government and, therefore, PNG must invest in its human resource to compete in the region and on the international arena,” he said.

Sir Puka also said he would be to “revive the public service machinery for the good of the nation.”

Public servants who had not performed will be dismissed to allow for competent and committed officers to serve the people, he said.

Transparency and accountability among public office holders will be a major focus of the alternate government.

“We will also make sure financial management procedures are resurrected to ensure all public funds are channelled in a transparent and accountable manner," Sir Puka said.

The functions of the Ombudsman Commission will be reviewed to give it greater power and autonomy in dealing with corrupt leadership.
