Governor General Post

Election of GG’s post politically motivated: Basil

Basil, who is the local Bulolo MP, said the writing is already on the wall.

He told Loop PNG that the O’Neill – Dion Government have the majority numbers in Parliament and had used that to bulldoze laws to suit their political interest in this term, and the Governor-General’s post will be no different.

Basil said, any appeal by the Opposition for a neutral person to be the country’s head of state will not be heard because it’s becoming a waste of time.
