PNC to introduce legislations to protect Free Education

A new People’s National Congress government after the elections will set up an Endowment Fund for education and introduce legislations to ensure the free education policy is continued and not politicised.

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill revealed this in Pangia during his nomination last Friday.

He said in 2012, PNC promised to deliver free education and has lived up to its word.

It has invested K3b every year to deliver this policy despite hiccups along the way.

To continue to assist parents pay their children’s school fees, the new government looks to continue this policy but with legislations in place.

With these new legislations, all future governments will put education as priority number one and must not be changed for political convenience.
