New political parties set to announce main policies

The Registry of Political Parties will be hosting a meeting next month for seven new political parties to announce their main policies.

The new parties were announced and presented with certificates today as registered political parties approved by the Integrity of Political Parties and Candidates Commission.

They will meet in a one hour session on March 3 in Port Moresby to announce their four main policies that they will campaign on in the 2017 national election.

Registrar of Political Parties Dr Alphonse Gelu said the session will not be a debate but to allow the leaders of these parties to showcase themselves and their parties.

This exercise was undertaken by the other registered political parties in the final Leaning and Development Workshop in 2016.

The new parties are Paradise Kingdom Party, PNG First Party, Model Nation Party, Trust PNG Party, PNG Youths Party, Nations Interest Party and PNG Social Party.
