Govt in no rush for permanent appointment: Duma

Minister for State Owned Enterprises, William Duma, says the Government is in no rush to make a permanent appointment to the PNG Power managing director position.

Minister Duma said while the NEC has announced for the position to be advertised, they are also monitoring the performance of the current managing director, Carolyn Blacklock.

He said any appointment will be made on merit and they will be considering all the best candidates to take over the role and to implement the government’s agenda to improvement power services in the country.

The Minister said this following the announcement of Peter Nupiri as chairman of PPL and Maureen Mori and Prashanti Shasti as directors of the board.
