PNG Sovereignty

Sovereignty must never be sacrificed: Lelang

The Opposition Leader acknowledges that our Constitution anticipates such Defence Co-operation agreements with other countries under Section 206. Furthermore, Parliament has passed an enabling Act to guide how to deal with such agreements.

However, the Opposition Leader has cautioned the Government to be careful not to underestimate the effect of such agreements on our legal system and the potential to compromise our national security interest, Constitution, and sovereignty.
