PNG PM Marape disorganized, says Namah

PNG Opposition Leader Belden Namah has criticized the Marape led government for its delay in handing down the 2019 Supplementary Budget.

Prime Minister James Marape earlier made statements that when Parliament resumes for sitting on Tuesday 08th of October, his government will hand down a Supplementary budget.

But after the third day of sitting on yesterday, 10th of October, and the government again did not hand down the 2019 Supplementary budget, the Opposition Leader describes the PM and his government as disorganized and confused.

He says today the country was hoping to see the government hand down the supplementary budget, which the Prime Minister has come out publicly saying it will rescue the country from its current financial problems.

And Mr Namah says the government has more than enough time to prepare the supplementary budget.

The Opposition Leader adds that the country looks forward to this new government introducing new polices to rescue PNG from its current economic situation but up until now, the Opposition is yet to see the Marape Government introduce one of its government policies without just talking about their ideas.

Mr Namah says he was disappointed that the government keeps adjourning Parliament after question time since the house resumed session on Tuesday this week, with no bills or legislations brought to Parliament, implying it is disorganized and has no business for government to conduct.

Yesterday afternoon Mr Namah says he was further disappointed that the Prime Minister and some key ministers were not present in Parliament, including the leader of Government Business, which saw the Deputy prime Minister rise to adjourn Parliament again to today 10am.
