​PNC respects NA comments

​Tari-Pori member-elect, James Marape, says the recent announcement by the National Alliance to form the next Government is respected.

Marape says they respect the view of NA if they feel they are a better alternative to a People’s National Congress-led coalition government.

This follows the announcement by Member-elect for Namatanai, Walter Schnaubelt, in Port Moresby this week that NA was confident of forming the next government.

NA was a major coalition partner under the PNC-led government.

Marape said PNC was equally confident and will have more members when they head into camp.

“For PNC Party and other coalition partners, we are moving camp into Alotau starting Sunday and you will see the shape and format of our government,” Marape said.

He said PNC could have 11 elected members by the weekend, as well as other coalition partners from the last parliament as well as independents, two of which have aligned with the party already.
