The PNG National Research Institute (PNG NRI) in collaboration with the Registry of Political Parties and Integrity of Political Parties and Candidates Commission (IPPCC); PNG-Australia Governance Partnership; and National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) launched the Political Parties’ Policies Seminar Series 2021 Proceedings Report.
The Report titled: PNG Political Parties’ Policies Seminar Series 2021: Seminar Proceedings Report gives an overview of the 26 political parties that presented their parties’ policies in November and December of last year in preparation for the upcoming 2022 National General Elections (NGE).
PNG NRI Director, Dr Osborne Sanida, in his opening remarks thanked key stakeholders and the 26 political parties for their presentations that was made known to the wider audience via live stream (Facebook and Microsoft Teams).
Dr Sanida said there were planned activities going forward in research and observation during the 2022 NGE. Lastly, the Director appealed to voters to vote on policy lines and not on “big man politics” or “money politics” or “handout politics.”
The Report was launched by Dr Alphonse Gelu, Registrar of Political Parties and IPPCC. Dr Gelu said, PNG has a long way to do to fully understand the concept and the importance of voting for for political parties.
Dr Gelu was grateful of the collaboration between PNG NRI and IPPCC and other institutions during the seminar
series and encouraged that more should be done between government agencies or public and private sectors for
the good of Papua New Guinea.
