      I am sad to say this but the sad reality is that the highland polies do not command the respect as those early leaders in the likes of Iambakey Okuk or Wingti. Most of them have got elected under the barrel of the gun and involved massive sums of public monies to lure voters.
      Somare made the right judgement in overlooking Polye and landed the PM's post to Abal. At least Abal has some intergrity. Polye is as good as gone. He surprised me when he got in as the first MP in the last election through the LPV in a most remote and uneduacted population. The writing was clear "there was cheating" by bribed policemen...in other words, Polye is junk and corrupted, to say the least.
      So the choice now is to keep Abal there, bring back Wingti who has learnt his lession while being man handled twice by the Hageners.
