​Parties, Independents team up

The National Alliance, PANGU and People’s Progress Party are teaming up with a number of other parties and independent candidates to form the next government.

PANGU Party Leader Sam Basil met with Sir Mekere Morauta, who represented the Independents, and Leader of PNG National Party, Kerenga Kua, in Port Moresby over the weekend, to discuss the camping arrangements for their groups. 

The parties in the group, known as The Alliance, preparing to form the next Government are National Alliance, PANGU and PPP as the major players, and other parties including the National Party, PNG Party, Coalition for Reform Party, Melanesian Liberal Party, Melanesian Alliance, New Generation, People’s Movement for Change, THE Party, PNG First, and Independents.

The smaller group of parties and Independents combined expect to contribute over 20 members to The Alliance.

With that number, The Alliance is ready to form the next Government, and welcomes any other parties to join.
