O’Neill is in Mendi and is expected to arrive anytime soon. People have lined the road with placards, banners, painted vehicles all showing support for the Prime Minister and his PNC Party.
O’Neill nominates in Pangia today to retain his Ialibu-Pangia seat. It is too early to know how many candidates will be contesting in this electorate.
Loop PNG will provide the complete information of the number of candidates running against the Prime Minister by the close of nomination next week.
O’Neill was first elected as member for Ialibu Pangia in 2002 when he unseated Roy Yaki.
O’Neill was re-elected in 2007 and 2012. He is now running for a 4th term in office.
