Enga Governor Peter Ipatas,

Do you think that Enga Governor Peter Ipatas will be re-elected in Parliment? Eventhough there has been quite a number alligations on him,

And keeping in mind that.. as long as the Enga vote counting is situated in Wabag, he will still be the Enga Goernor for Enga aslong as he Lives.

PLEASE HAVE YOUR SAY;

Not allegations. He was found guilty by a Leadership tribunal. Because the Tribunal decided not to kick him out of office people are wrongly assuming that he was found innocent.

Ipatas wants more stake at Porgera mine

ENGA Governor Peter Ipatas wants the Government to buy 20 per cent stake in the Porgera gold mine in the event Emperor Mines wants to offload its interest.
He said there were strong rumours Emperor would offload its 20 per cent shareholding in Porgera as it did with its interest in the Vatukoula mine in Fiji.
Mr Ipatas said the Government should make a move now and increase local shareholding in the project to 25 per cent.
The Enga provincial government and the landowners already own five per cent in Porgera through Mineral Resources Enga.
MRE is managed by the Mineral Resources Development Company on behalf of the people of Enga.

Canadian miner Barrick Gold is the majority shareholder with 75 per cent and according to rumours, the company might make a bid to have 95 per cent control of the mine.
“The Government must now make a move to take back the 20 per cent it lost when it decided to sell Orogen to Oil Search,” Mr Ipatas said.
Oil Search sold the 20 per cent interest in Porgera when it decided to concentrate on its oil and gas assets in the country.
He said Barrick would not be allowed to have total control of Porgera Joint Venture.
“With good commodity prices and a potential extension of the mine life of Porgera, the Government, through the Mineral Resources Development Company, should buy out the 20 per cent in Porgera,” he said.
“Then the people of Enga should be given a further five per cent (on commercial terms) to increase their shareholding to 10 per cent.”
Mr Ipatas said the surplus gains the Government was boasting about should be parked aside and used to increase Government interest in major mining and petroleum companies.
He said the days when the Government and the landowners received only royalties should be over and the Government and landowners should now become effective players in these two industries.
He said one of things his Peoples’ Party would ensure was majority shareholding of all resource projects would remain in Papua New Guinea.
He said his party would also ensure Papua New Guineans reaped the maximum benefits from their resources.
Mr Ipatas said such investments should be promoted so that Papua New Guineans became active players in any investments such as mining and petroleum, fisheries and forestry.
He said the mistakes of the past should not be repeated.

That's not a fabrication from media.

Ipatas is known to be an initiator and has demonstrated what he is talking about when his government ensured that part of the reciepts from the mining royalties are diversified into other profitable industries like real estate.

You may like to learn abit of history that the Ipatas Government has invested tens of millions of Kina in securing properties under the Enga Children's Fund in Port Moresby. That is sustainable development.

There you have it. He knows and understands what he is talking about.

Peter Ipatas is good....but not THAT good to be PM

Problem is; he is corrupt, unprincipled, prone to manipulation and immoral. PNG does not need a PM like Peter Ipatas. It would be just great if he remains a major provincial player and governor for the rest of his political career.

At the national level we need someone better to run the country. Someone who can make a difference to our country.

I admire his charisma and forward thinking, his actions which has resulted in a bit of improvement in Enga, his ambitions to be PM but I would say he is not THAT good enough to be PM. He is not the JOSHUA PNG needs to take it to the promised land.

Peter Ipatas' little trick sounds simlar to Hami Yawari's gracious "investment" of the future generations fund of the Kutubu people after he got access to their account and corruptly drained it to zero. It actually went into his pocket.

If you can manage and keep your own house in order than you can mangage the ouside world, otherwise you will never. Just forget it. PNG had enough of corruption, stealing, overnight millionaires, liers and the whole lot of the garbage. Lets now think positive and talk positive. PNG needs someone honest to put the country back on track.

Literally billions of kina worth of Pogera gold are gone and exported and only now Ipatas wants to buy into the operation. Sounds like something Somare would do. Yeah that's real PM material talking.

Prime Ministerial Material

honestly speaking, Ipatas, Yawari, Yama & Wingti are not prime ministerial material. Wingti made it when the country was at an infant stages where not many people were educated. Lucky for him stalling away millions in Kayman Island.

All these people have very dirty back ground. The monies thrown around by these fellas are stolen money. We all have witnessed it. Each one can endorse 100 candidates in their respective parties but because their money is dirty all over some clean guys with clean money will make it.

Be Real PNG
