Prime Minister and Pangu Pati leader James Marape announced today that Pangu will be fielding a good team of candidates for the 2022 General Election which starts next month.
He said Pangu would soon be announcing its team for the elections and is confident of winning a good number of seats and forming government.
“Pangu will be fielding quality candidates, including women, for the elections,” PM Marape said.
“Our Pangu team is going through the list of possible candidates now, with the Party Council taking carriage of this.
“We will be announcing our candidates very soon after the final selection process is completed.
“Only me as Pangu Leader, with blessing of the Party Council, will make the announcement of the candidates.
“No-one else, right throughout the country, will have that authority.
“The Parliamentary wing, with the blessing of the Party President and the Party Council, will make that announcement.”
PM Marape said Pangu had produced a third Prime Minister in himself and would produce many more.
“Pangu Pati will have a fourth, fifth, sixth and many more prime ministers going into the future,” he said.
“We will take this country where it is supposed to go, as our Pangu visionaries led by Great Grand Chief Sir Michael Thomas Somare, foresaw in 1975.
“‘Pangu Save Long Rot’, our slogan in Tok Pisin, translates to ‘Pangu Knows the Way’.
“We saw the way forward in 1975, along the way we were sidetracked by political instability, but are now back on track again.
“We are taking Papua New Guinea back from the wrong road we have been travelling and putting it back on the right road, of not just political independence, but economic independence.
“Pangu now has that goal of economic independence for PNG firmly in our sights.”
