Zero tolerance policy on crime: Parkop

The National Capital District Commission (NCDC) is to adopt a zero tolerance policy on crime/lawbreakers and other pressing issues confronting the city of Port Moresby.

Third-term Governor, Powes Parkop, announced that he is ready to work with the other three MPs to change the nation’s capital.

Parkop made the announcement during the swearing in of three MPs; Sir Mekere Morauta (Moresby North-West), John Kaupa (Moresby North-East) and Justin Tkatchenko (Moresby South) as commissioners for the NCDC.

Parkop was sworn in by senior district court magistrate, Tracey Ganaii, last Thursday (Aug 10) to chair NCDC Building and Physical Planning Board.

“I’m ready to roll up my sleeves and give my best shot to help transform Port Moresby to a new level into the 21st Century,” Parkop said.

“We need to get basic things right and that is to be zero tolerance on crime, littering, illegal alcoholic liquor sales, unapproved erection of structures and other issues affecting the capital city.

“The times of procrastination and complacency are over. We must do more and take a quantum leap to lift Port Moresby to greater heights, providing inspiration for our people and country,” stated the Governor.
