PM confident in new ministers

Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, has described the newly sworn-in Cabinet as ‘young and energetic’ and determined to save the country.

A total of 25 ministers were sworn-in by the Governor General Sir Bob Dadae today at the Government House in Port Moresby.

“There’s a good wealth of experience and young talent leaders who have come in to save our country in the next few years.

“I know that they will give it their best of ability to serve the nation and the people and today is the beginning of that.”

O’Neill said the first cabinet meeting will be held tomorrow to begin the work that is ahead of them to meet the aspirations of the people and the country.

He added the new Cabinet is looking forward to the challenges ahead of them and will be addressing specific issues according to the Alotau Accord 2 agreements.

“We have tried to have a good regional balance, and used the experience and talents that each leader has and we’ll certainly be making sure that they are put into good use for the interest of the nation."
