failed Prime Minister and Member of Parliament

Early campaigning by former PM: Parkop

In a statement in response to the announcement, Parkop labeled Sir Mekere’s intentions as early campaigning by a failed former Prime Minister and Member for North West.

Parkop said this was a  desperate attempt to protect his position in PNG Sustainable Development Ltd which he alleges has become Sir Mekere’s personal cash-cow.

"This is a personal feud with the Prime Minister, after PM O’Neill took him to court to try to put an end to Sir Mekere’s corrupted operation of PNG Sustainable.
