WHERE IS KOMPIAM AMBUM'S TEN MILLION KINA LAW & JUSTICE SECTOR GRANTS

Image
by LEO AMBEN As I write this, Kompiam Government station is under fire. For twenty Years, Ambum people have died trying to and while fleeing from tribal war lords. Those who escaped successfully are living miserable lives. The last break I visited, my heart melted at the sight of families living in exile, in forever fear and agony, feeling depressed and isolated. School aged children’s lives and education are continuously being deprived while living an asylum’s life. 
All these are happening right under watchful eyes of John Pundari, not to mention his strongholds from whom he seek advice. 
I cannot be complacent this time any more. Not when I have literally buried chopped up bits and pieces of my fathers’ and brothers’ remains. The District Services Improvement Program (DSIP) Fund per province is Ten Million Kina (K10 Million). This K10 Million is broken down into seven main service sector grants. Shown below the allocation per service sector per year together with an estimated 10 years …

2017 ELECTION IS THE MOST CRUCIAL FOR PNG CONSIDER THIS AND DECIDE

Image
by MEAGHER TAYLOR This coming 2017, National General Election is most significant and crucial for the nation Papua New Guinea, and for every provinces, including my beloved Gulf Province with its current LNG issues. We have witnessed well over 5 years of turbulence, instabilities, corruptions, and undue manipulations of individuals, and reputable organisations, by current government of Peter O’Steal. The extent of the damages done by this grand coalition government to methodically destabilised the legal functions, rule of laws, procedures, processes and control structures is beyond comprehension. PNC and the ruling alliance has destroyed the independence and trust of custodian institutions designed to uphold the constitution, safe guard, and protect the nation. These acts of control by egotistic avaricious Prime Minister and his cohorts are mere deeds of criminalities to avoid incarceration. The principles and visions on which this nation was built upon by our fore-father many demised…

The Strategy That Virtually Guarantees An Overwhelming PNC Victory In the 2017 Elections (Part 2)

Image
by WALI DAVID

In the first part of this article, I began to outline the strategy that almost guarantees PNG winning the 2017 elections in a landslide and puts the Prime Minister in position to remain in power for as long as he wants, even for life.  
There are 4 different parts to this strategy.   In Part1, the necessity of focusing the 2017 campaign on rural open seats and forget about urban electorates was explained.   Following that, the need to politicize the Electoral Commission so that it came firmly under PNC control but remaining a government body was explained.   
We will now turn to the 3rd strategy of the grand plan that would allow the PNC to win the 2017 election in a landslide.  


GRAND STRATEGY 3-  AT THE BEGINNING OF ELECTION YEAR, BEGIN TRANSFER OF LARGE SUMS OF PUBLIC MONEY TO RURAL DISTRICTS
This part of the strategy involves putting together a massive warchest to fund candidates.   Specfiically, it involves acquiring and sending large sums of public money to reach candid…

REMEMBER JUNE 13TH, THE DEFAULT DAY FOR UBS LOAN.

Image
Dear Honourable Members of Parliament. 

Papua New Guinea is not broke but only one person is holding this country to ransom, and the consequences will adversely affect your political careers. if you allow Peter O'Neil to be in power after 13th June, 2016, the default date of the UBS loan, UBS will likely declare PNG insolvent. Meaning PNG government can print K3 billion but we do not have the foreign currency to convert this printed money. World Bank is already in the country, they are funding roads and infrastructures now, after we've been declared insolvent under Peter O'Neil. World Bank IMF will give us money for Budget Support with the following austerity measures: 1. No DSIP/PSIP 2. NO Free Education and Health Care 3. Budget cut by 60% 4. Customary Land Mobilisation Program The stoppage in DSIP/PSIP funds will affect most the programs you honourable MPs have created and you will end up loosing your seats. Many other consequences you might face. Tuesday is the …

HOSPITAL MONIES NOW DIVERTED BY O'NEILL TO GOVERNMENT MPs SLUSH FUNDS

O’NEILL GOVERNMENT MPs PUTTING HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF KINA FOR HOSPITALS INTO THEIR OWN SLUSH FUNDS

Every day thousands and thousands of sick people queue up at hospitals and health clinics across the country seeking treatment or medicines for themselves or their loved ones.

But as Prime Minister Peter O’Neill and his colleagues and cronies steal more and more money, borrow more and more money and waste more and more money, those people are increasingly being turned away.

It does not matter how sick you are or who you are.

Children with infectious diseases, pregnant mamas, bubus with heart illness, people suffering from malaria or TB, diabetes and hepatitis patients – all are being turned away.

PETER O’NEILL SLASHING HEALTH BUDGET

Welcome to Papua New Guinea under the O’Neill Regime.

PNG Blogs recently revealed how the Prime Minister’s promises not to cut spending on essential services such as health were just lies.

According to the 2016 Budget, health spendi…

O'NEILL GOVERNMENT PASSED THE 2016 BUDGET WITH MADE UP OR FALSE FIGURES, INACCURATE AND MANIPULATED DATA AND STATISTICS

Image
by GOVERNMENT INSIDER

In a meeting with some World Bank people and some former Ausaid Consultants to PNG, this is what they had to say about PNG parliamentarians and the current government's management of the economy.

They say, 99% of our parliamentarians are economically and financial illiterate. For example; They do not have any idea about the UBS Loan or the LR Generator deal, or even the importance of the 2016 budget document, as such no one is capable of debating the nitty gritty ties of such enormous financial transactions and legislations provocatively.  They even don't care about the economic implications befalling from such decisions. Therefore PNG Parlaiment under the current regime lacks good governance. What a shame?

The other thing, they said there is no prudential Management of the PNG economy by the Peter O'Neill government, they said the current government manipulated fundamental data and statistics on the real GDP, a sign shown by the 2015 budget outcome, an…

SO IS PNG BROKE?

Image
by BRYAN KRAMER

The short answer is, Yes. This is evident following the O'Neill Government’s delayed payments of the public servant salaries last Wednesday.

I was first made aware of the issue a week earlier when an article was posted on social media explaining that public servants would not be paid on time due to cash-flow crisis and that the Government would blame it on the payroll system.

A week later its what exactly transpired.

Prime Minister Peter O'Neill, Secretary of Treasury Dairi Vele, and Secretary of Finance Dr Ken Ngangan all claimed the delay was due to the payroll system and nothing to do with being broke.
Secretary of Treasury Vele issued a public statement, "Papua New Guinea is not broke!” He added that the economy was estimated to have grown by 9.9 per cent last year, driven by the ramp up of the full year of the liquefied natural gas (LNG) production. He further explained PNG’s economic growth was among the highest in the world, “PNG’s…

EXPENDITURE IN PNG’s 2016 BUDGET – A Detailed Analysis

Image
by PAUL FLANAGAN PNG is a high-taxing and very high-spending country relative to its Asia Pacificpeers. Most of any adjustment to the fiscal balance should therefore occur on the expenditure side. PNG is planning to do this with a drop in the expenditure to GDP ratio from the highest level ever, of 38.1% in 2013, to its lowest level ever, of 24.6% in 2020. PNG has never attempted such a fiscal consolidation – not even to recover from the fiscal crises of the 1990s. Putting this into an international perspective, PNG is seeking to adjust government expenditure by 13.5% of the economy. This is more than double the government expenditure reductions undertaken by Greece of 6.3% (from 51.4% of GDP in 2010 to 45.1% of GDP in 2015). Of course, PNG is not facing a Greek-style fiscal crisis (at the start of its crisis Greece had a broadly similar deficit of 11%, but a much higher public debt level of 170% of GDP), but it is planning a similar or more draconian response. PNG is seeking real expen…
