An official from Government House confirmed with Loop PNG today that June is the confirmed month the vice-regal of Papua New Guinea will travel to England to be knighted.
The former three-term parliamentarian took his oath of loyalty to the Independent State of Papua New Guinea and the Queen of England before Chief Justice Sir Salamo Injia in Parliament on January 28.
Dadae is the country’s 10th Governor General and will serve the vice-regal office for six years.
Under the laws of Papua New Guinea, a governor general can only serve in the office for no more than two terms.
