At what costs? Do you want the disruptions of vital goods and services to our people while we all engage ourselves in protesting? The Arab offspring and Russian societies are different because they were ruled by dictators for a long time. That is why the residents have been protesting for their peopleís freedom of expression. Unlike us, we are a democratic society. I wonder what you all would be saying if either NA or THE Party or any other political parties were leading in the polls. Would you also cry foul play?
In our tribalistic society, folks always identify themselves with tribes and persons of acquaintances irrespective of what their qualifications or experiences are in the modern era. These folks also donít care about how corrupted some of the candidates are because we educated elites have let them down in the first place. By identifying ourselves with tribalism and regionalism, we have not close the gap of uniting our people of many tribes and cultures but divided them even further. For instance, take these provinces of East Sepik and Southern Highlands as examples. The people of East and West Sepik are voting in all NA members even though we all know that some of them are corrupted and definitely don't deserve another term. Likewise the Southern Highlanders are voting in some of the corrupted PNC candidates to secure the PM post for OíNeil. It would have been great if all the Sepiks had voted in other partiesí candidates so as SHP and Hela Provinces. For me, I am very surprised and disappointed to see Gabriel Kapris Ė one of the most performing candidates in East Sepik Province losing his seat to a NA man. We must stop all this nonsense of Iím being a highlander and you being from the nambis. We all donít deserve to live in this beautiful country of ours called PNG anymore.
