Maru Slams Govt’s Silence On Westpac Sale

Member for Yangoru Sausia, Richard Maru has called on the Prime Minister to clarify why the Government is silent on the acquisition of Westpac Bank.

Maru raised this concern on the floor of Parliament yesterday during the Question Without Notice period.

"Why is the Government so silent and not backing up the acquisition of Westpac Bank?"

Prime Minister James Marape responded and clarified that the Independent Consumer and Competition is an independent body and the process of acquisition is still ongoing.

He further added that investors in the country have a choice to stay and continue doing business or leave.
