Juffa told Loop PNG that he respects Masere’s decision to move as he has his own reasons.
However, he hope Masere’s move does not in any way prevent him from working with the provincial government in delivering the services that the people deserve.
He said Masere, along with Sohe MP Henry Amule, have made an agreement to work together regardless of which sides they are attached to.
“He’s still part of the Oro assembly and will continue to be part of the assembly.
“I hope this situation will be a situation where the government uses this not as a divisive effort but rather, continues to maintain its responsibility to the people of Oro.”
Masere went to the elections under the banner of the National Alliance party.
He was also the MP that made headlines in local news and overseas regarding his alleged attempted kidnapping to join the Alotau camp during the formation of Government.
