NCDC Betelnut ban

Parkop calls on politicians to save future generations

The second term parliamentarian made these comments following the decision by the National Capital District Commission in banning and now partly lifting the ban of betelnut selling in Port Moresby.       

With seven months before the issue of writs for the 2017 National General Election, Governor Parkop said he is ready to face the voters.

“In political office, sometimes we have to make decision that not really popular, they might be tough on our people but some decisions have to be made for the collective wellbeing of our people for the future.
