JAMES MARAPE IS THE ONLY LOGICAL CHOICE FOR ALTERNATE PRIME MINISTER NOW DESPITE OUR PREFERENCES

by WILSON PUNIM

Marape made the first move that broke the ruling PNC Party that has now led to the stepping aside/down of Peter O'Neill. Only he could have done it and he did it, putting the final nails to the coffin with the defeat of the stay application.
.
James Marape was the first one to come to the aid of the Opposition and it's 24 kwilas' attempt to move a Vote of No Confidence against Peter O'Neill. He moved when the chips were down for the Opposition and brought energy and momentum with him.
.
James Marape gave impetus to the Opposition's plans, moving with conviction and not out of convenience. He boosted the Opposition's plans to save and take back PNG.
.
James Marape unselfishly withdrew his nomination as the alternate PM, which has led to the defeat of a stay application and the defection of many to the Opposition's fold and now to O'Neill's stepping aside/down.
.
James Marape's two moves have now led to the stepping aside/down of Peter O'Neill and perhaps the tendering of his resignation to the Governor-General. This would otherwise have not been possible if James Marape had not moved.
.
The position of the Opposition all along was for any one to come with the numbers and take over the Prime Ministership. Their only objective was to remove and rid Peter O'Neill from the Prime Minister's chair.
.
The Opposition must now stand behind James Marape and allow him to finish Peter O'Neill off in the floor of Parliament.
.
It is only two and a half years before the national elections in 2022. I say nominate James Marape and help him fix the mess created by Peter O'Neill.
.
It is obvious that nominating of one of the 24 kwilas will not go down well with those that defected.
.
It is also obvious that the nomination of one of the other defectors, other than James Marape will not go down well with the 24 kwilas.
.
As much as I have my own preference, THE ONLY LOGICAL CHOICE NOW IS JAMES MARAPE.
.
The quality and calibre of MPs among the 24 kwilas must now be prepared to stand with Marape and truly take back our country in the two and a half years they have left.
.
James Marape, if you are reading this, give the lion's share of ministries and other portfolios to the 24 kwilas. They deserve the treatment after suffering with their people for two and a half years.
