MARTYN AWAYANG NAMORONG
PAPUA NEW GUINEA has never really had a bipolar parliament of left and right or progressive and conservative, whichever way you wanna see it.
In the next parliament we see developing now a quasi-polarized political situation of pro-Somare and anti-Somare.
Looks like we haven't seen the end of the political crisis.
I can't imagine O'Neill and Namah allowing Somare back into power. They and their accomplices risk being thrown into prison if they aren't in power.
The disciplinary forces are already compromised and it is difficult to see whether there will be any impartiality on their part.
Papua New Guinean voters can define their own destiny by not returning all 109 sitting MPs. But I have no faith in the gullible PNG voters. Many have become election whores.
In any case I expect record hits on my blog as this nation run by drunks staggers from one crisis to another.
Top week at the polls folks!
