The event took place at the Provincial capital, Mendi.
In his official speech to the PEC members, chairman and Governor, William Powi told the leaders that it's about time SHP moves forward and not to be stagnant.
"Let us put away our political indifference and serve the people and move the province forward.
"We cannot just sit back and let problems take control of our province, but stand up and solve the issues at hand.
"We are leaders and we're elected to serve our people."
