PM commits to serve people

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has assure the people of PNG that his Government will continue to be a Government that governs and unites all people.

O’Neill made these remarks during the first parliament sitting on Tuesday.

“We will execute the mandate that has been entrusted to us with diligence and compassion and will work day-and-night to deliver the infrastructure and the services that will continue to strengthen our economy and our communities.

“This is our pledge that our Government makes to our people.

“We will certainly not let you down, and we will deliver to your expectations.”

O’Neill said over recent decades, Papua New Guinea has suffered from a negative reputation because of law and order issues.

“Through the policy initiatives of the Second Alotau Accord, we will create safer and more secure communities.

“Our Government is committed to continuing the recruitment of well-disciplined police men and women, and also other disciplined forces, and equipping them properly so that they can do a fair job.”

He added that the Government will also review legislation that governs all of the disciplined services, to ensure far better accountability so that there is better command and control structures in place.
