NRI director Dr Charles Yala said the forum is organised to encourage political parties to develop constructive policies and give awareness to the voting population.
“Our interest is to make an input into the policy debate during the national elections.
“PNG NRI’s contribution to election 2017 is to provide a forum for political parties to market their policies in a non-threatening and friendly environment,” Dr Yala said.
The political parties forum will be run twice a week throughout the month of March.
No charges will be applied to the public to attend.
Meanwhile, the Writs of the Elections will be issued on April 20.
