Govt services must continue during election: Governor

Political heads of Morobe will continue to hold office until the writs are returned, says Morobe Governor Kasiga Kelly Naru.

During the Tutumang last Wednesday, he told the Provincial House that they would continue with their constitutional duties until the return of the writs.

The Governor stated that some of their LLG presidents would contest the National Elections but the majority of them will resume as LLG Presidents and be part of the Sam Sewec (Provincial Executive Council).

"It is crucial that government services continue to flow during the election period and therefore they will continue to provide services as required by the Constitution," clarified Naru.

He also farewelled those who would contest the election, including former Kabwum MP and Governor General Bob Dadae.

After the appointment of Dadae as the vice regal, Kabwum’s seat was left vacant. He was the incumbent MP for the past three terms.
