Pangu Pati executives maintain stand

General Secretary Morris Tovebae has maintained that the Pangu Pati executives are intact and have been conducting business as usual.

Tovebae made these remarks after Bulolo MP and Minister for Communication and Energy, Sam Basil, made an announcement recently that the party president Thomas Pundao and Tovebae were sidelined.

Tovebae, in a phone interview, told this newsroom that the Pangu Pati executives are conducting business as usual and everything is in control despite Basil’s announcement.

He said the party’s executive council is supreme and have the last say, according to OLLIPAC laws.

He added that the party council is also yet to decide the date and venue for the party’s convention where new executives will be appointed and sworn-in.

“We haven’t allocated a date and venue for the convention but will be making the announcement soon.”

Basil in a media conference recently clarified that Tovebae and Pundao had been sidelined by the executives on April 19.

Basil made this statement after claims of his suspension were raised by Tovebae and Pundao.

He said the leadership of the Pangu Pati was entirely dictated by the Parliamentary wing and not by the executives.
