Hagen Open

January 16 2002 at 1:51 PM

Hagen Open has to be one of the most expensive seats to contest for.

Does anyone have any idea who's standing for elections?

Only because I am involved a bit with Women in Politics I know that Theresa Timbi is standing but I don't know a lot about her.She is certainly very courageous and I did feel she had a physical presence about her.That would not mean anything but it was better than leaving no impression at all.

A number of people are contesting that seat.
Theresia Timbi, one of the Nui brothers among others. Paul Pora will be hard to beat though.

I think that is brave but it's about time. Maybe she would do better job than most of these male candidates..

Terisa Timbi is running

Terisa Timbi, Hagen businesswoman and wife of prominent business man and PDM strongman Paul Timbi is running. Well done to her!! It takes guts to take the challenge up in the enclave of male chauvenism that is Western Highlands.

Is Terisa from the Mt Kalina family along Rumba Rot, about 7 miles out of Hagen town?

If so, congratulations to her! She's done well.

Highlander men get extremely vicious where politics are concerned, so it's refreshing to see a woman get running for a place.

I really hope Terisa will lead the way in being a better politician than a lot of her male counterparts.

No - not that Timbi family

I think you've got the Theresia's mixed up. This Theresia Timbi is from Chimbu. She married Paul Timbi who is from central Mt.Hagen. They live around the New Town area of Hagen Town.

Good on her - but with a PDM ticket?

January 25 2002, 5:38 AM 

PDM is not in with Mt. Hagen these days.

You're right about PDM not being 'in' in in Hagen. But from what I've witnessed it's pretty strong in WHP as a whole seeing that there are other electorates. Who knows?

From what I've heard - Terisa Timbi is not going on a PDM ticket. She's going as an Independent - I think. She is vocal on women's issues so I don't think she'll be standing for a party that doesn't particularly advocate gender equality.

This year's election will be an interesting one. Especially for the WHP. I truly wonder whether PDM will fare well as a whole.

Info on Mrs Theresa Timbi

March 21 2002, 7:28 PM 

I know Theresa Timbi very well because all her kids we went to school together.

I am proud to see a mother like her standing in Hagen Central. This seat is renowned as the 'millionaire's' seat where candidates need lots of money to win. She is campaining without lots of money.

I believe that lot's of prominent leaders in Hagen are standing on their toes because she has the right platform and beliefs and is getting very popular in the electorate.

Unfortunately these leaders choose to be jealous of her efforts and create bad rumours because she is the first woman to be running for this seat since independence.

She is going as an independent candidate, using her own resources and this is a great thing.

If anybody wants to know more about her just place a note on the forum.

I congratulate her on taking up this great challenge to stand in a male dominated social system.

Apart from her i can't see any other Western highlands woman who is determined enough to take the challenge.

All the best....

Theresa Timbi..Great..Tell me more...

Good posting... because I see a courageous woman such as Theresa taking up the challenge in politics. I hope the women in WHP will rally their support behind her.I am interested to know how she is organisning her campaign as an independent candidate, her social and economic policies,how her presence as a candidate in the election will or have affected the sexist stereotypes held by men against woman who aspire for equality and equity in development.PNG in general is a society that perhaps have perpetuated masculinity as a norm for too long hence all men in politics, top jobs and other sphere of development while our PNG women remain at the bottom rung of employment and very few in Politics.Given this background I give my moral support to Theresa and any other women contesting National Election in PNG.

So insider please enrich me on these issues and my best wishes to Theresa and her campaign team for the Hagen Open seat

I know Teresa too, i think she will be a great memeber of parliment with her aggressiveness but why with PDM. She isn't an independent you know, behind it all is the PDM.
