Juffa on MPs switch

Oro Governor, Gary Juffa has challenged the three MPs who moved to the Government side, to translate their move into reality in terms of service delivery.

He said all MPs crossing the bench, had done so because of funding constraints impeding service delivery in their districts.

In a phone interview with this newsroom today, Governor Juffa challenged the recently defected Opposition members of parliament, to ensure service delivery is priority for their people.

He claimed that the Government is using DSIP and PSIP funds to lure MPs to join them.

However, when welcoming the three MPs, Prime Minister Peter O’Neill said the MPs move to the Government was at their own accord and nothing to do with DSIP and PSIP funds.

The three MPs who moved were Maprik MP, John Simon, Usino Bundi MP, Jimmy Uguro, and Governor for Western Province, Taboi Awi Yoto.

Simon and Uguro were with National Alliance Party whilst Awi Yoto was with the PNG Party.

Since joining the ruling People’s National Congress party, PNC party numbers have move up to 46.
