National Alliance Party aims to win more seats in 2017: Party Leader

​National Alliance Party members are in a retreat in an attempt to win more seats in the 2017 General Elections.

“Tomorrow (today) they will go into their regional grouping to come up with a winning strategy for their region, for the next two days,” NA parliamentary leader Patrick Pruaitch said.

Speaking during the party’s major fundraising dinner yesterday in Port Moresby, Pruaitch is confident to win more seats in the national elections next year.

“We will be able to agree and finalise our strategy and our candidates for the 2017 General Elections.

“As you know, going into the election is not easy, it’s an expensive exercise. Therefore as a party, we are gathered here to assist raise some funds for us to go into election and I am thankful for the large turnout tonight.”

 Pruaitch said the large turnout is assurance that National Alliance still has support throughout the country.

“On Monday we will finalise a way forward for our party.

“Our party has the experience, some of us we came into Parliament in 2002, most academics pronounced PNG as a failed state.

“In 2002, when National Alliance got into power under the leadership of Sir Michael Somare, within four months we were able to reverse the trend and turn the ship around.”

He added that the billion Kina LNG Project is an example of what NA did when in Government.
