O’Namah tries horse trading with the judiciary

Via PNG Blogs

Papua New Guinea’s flip-flopping Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has remained defiant saying the Judicial conduct law will only be removed if the Chief Justice, Salamo Injia resigns. 

Arriving with a government entourage under heavy police guard, O’Neill addressed more than 4000 people at the Sir John Guise Stadium at midday today.

The PM also wants another senior judge, Justice Kirriwom to step aside as part of a trade off to have the judicial conduct law repealed. Both judges have been at the center of the controversy between the government the judiciary.

O’Neill’s response has drawn public anger from Papua New Guineans both on the streets and on social media networks.

“What’s the next step PNG? I’d like an all out rampage across the nation. This is so bloody waste of time. Do we now fear these Dictators?,” said one Twitter user.

    Png is in the hands of dictators. Citizens of Png boycott the National Elections. It is dangerous if the citizens are divided and starts to take sides with those in power. Things will be out of hand and we will start killing each other.

    We can only wait and see what the political circus that is the O’Namah government will come up with next.
