Is wantokism rampant in the public service? Do you think our public sector should reflect the beautiful ethnic diversity of this country? Do you think some goverment departments are becoming ethnicized or tribalised?

From my personal observation, I hardly see people or ethnic groups from Western Province, Goilala or Kukukukuku people in our public sevice.I see some goverment agencies being dominated by people from a particular area. For instace, Narcotics Bureau of PNG and PNG Climatic Office.
