Parliamentarians must be leaders: Milne Bay Governor

The deputy leader of the Peoples Progress Party Titus Philemon challenged fellow parliamentarians to be leaders and not followers as the count down of the vote of no-confidence against Prime Minister Peter O’Neill nears.

The Opposition sponsored VONC will be the only business when Parliament sits at 10am tomorrow.  

“Leadership should be based on the quality in decision making, and people (parliamentarians) should be making their own decisions without being influenced by others.

“And we at the Opposition stand for this strong stable leadership, because the Peoples Progress Party stands for strong (and) stable leadership,” Philemon said.

The Milne Bay Governor’s province has been hosting the Government camp for the last few days as they do soul some searching before the VONC.     

Philemon said, his people want a change in the country’s leadership and this showed when concerned citizens hosted a trouble-free public discussion in Alotau yesterday. 

He said PPP is contributing six MPs to the Opposition camp.

The only PPP MP with the government side is the Minister for Mining Byron Chan.

PPP crossed the floor to join the Opposition last Friday.
