Further to that, remember that PNGeans hardly (or not at all) vote along party lines and party policies. So you see, the politician owes it to his constituents.His political life depends on these people down there - not the party or the principles of good governance. Some Pollies may preach about good governance. We cheer them up and call them true leaders but do the people in the electorate hold the same view? Someone can preach about good governance and deliver services when in office but if he refuses to assist some of his crooked constituents or financiers, chances of losing the next election is high.
Everything will come down to the ordinary citizens of this country to change the way we think.If we want tranparency and good governance (which will eventually lead to progress for PNG), we have to stop practising the opposite at a personal level.
