Ipatas puts hands up as an alternative PM
By HARLYNE JOKU
PEOPLE’S Party parliamentary leader and Enga Governor Peter Ipatas has put his hands up to be prime minister if given the chance.
He indicated this at the People’s Party convention held at Amapiak International Lutheran School an hour from Wabag, Enga province, at the weekend.
Mr Ipatas’s aspirations to be PM were also supported by Party president Wera Mori who described Mr Ipatas as an action governor and leader who has qualities and the potential of becoming prime minister.
Lutheran Church leader Bishop David Piso and several church leaders also pledged their support for Mr Ipatas to more than 1,000 Engans who attended a dedication service at Aipos Rugby Oval last Thursday to celebrate Enga Day (April 17). They said Mr Ipatas had the qualities to become Prime Minister.
And on Sunday, Bishop Piso preached to his congregation at Irelya Lutheran Church that it was God’s plan that Mr Ipatas should one day become the prime minister of PNG.
People from the surrounding villages that Mr Ipatas and his delegation visited where presented with gifts of pigs, bananas, sugarcane and cartons of softdrinks.
Mr Ipatas said People’s Party was the first to lead smaller PNG political parties in hosting its first national convention at Amapiak Lutheran International School, about an hour’s drive from Wabag.
More than 200 participants from Bougainville, West New Britain, Sandaun, Gulf, Central and the Highlands provinces attended the two-day convention.
Mr Ipatas said the political convention was the first for the party a national election which indicated the seriousness of the party.
Highlights of the convention were the review of the party policies and adoption of party policies and guidelines based on the principle of bringing positive changes to the lives of all Papua New Guineans.
The People’s Party also resolved to accept the one-man PNG Advanced Party of Kompiam-Ambum MP John Pundari to amalgamate with People’s Party bringing its strength from three MPs to four.
Mr Ipatas supported by his party president Mori said at the opening of the convention that the People’s Party will not thrive on political rhetoric’s and lip service to Papua New Guineans while millions of kina were lost along the corridors of Waigani.
He stressed that the Peoples Party believes in a well educated population to advance the country into the 21st Century.
“The country needs educated and skilled human resources to stimulate and complement economic activities that will cultivate sustainable development for the long term,” Mr Ipatas said.
My daddy the guvner
|April 24 2008, 5:53 AM |
I just want you to know that I love my daddy. He is the best. He is a jolly man who plays with little kiddies and lets us sit on his fat belly. If the country wants my daddy to be the boss then ask Somare to move aside and let daddy be the boss. And my daddy is good because he gives us presents. He just has to go the guvmen and get his money. He does this all the time. In and out, getting money to give to us and to all the pretty girls in the town of Wabag. I have many sisters who love daddy and play with him at the park behind the toilets. They all love daddy and they say that daddy has the biggest in the world. They love to play with daddy. when daddy comes back from playing his face is all red and he is lost for breath and I know he has been playing hard with the girls.

Peter Ipatas denies he plans a coup
|May 1 2008, 8:37 AM |
Ipatas, Enga's governor, was believed to have advocated revolution and a coup against Somare. The Engan Governor denies this allegation. It is further believed that Ipatas was planning to involve army dissidents and police in an armed coup against Somare. This Ipatas denies. Police intend to question Ipatas.
Peter Ipatas planning coup?

tell him his dying any time soon so rather not disturb the running of the country. Well, he seems to be a good men in providing his people with services but the way you Engans are running around with self pride and too much boasting I think you will never ever smell the governors sit.
By the way he does not have the education.

Peter Ipatas won his doctorate by being very cunning. Now he is Dr Ipatas and it is assumed he will control PNg in the very near future. So buy shares in Ipatas Inc.
Enga Govenor avoids police enquiry
|May 13 2008, 6:33 AM |
Ipatas deserted his work yesterday when the police visited his office to make enquiries about illegal activities with young girls in Wabag. When wantoks say that Ipatas is not corrupt it generally means that the wantoks are corrupt too. Enga is breaking and it is the fault of the govenor Ipatas

Ipatas buys property in Cairns
|May 19 2008, 6:18 AM |
Ipatas owns many properties in Cairns and is making lots of money
|May 19 2008, 10:29 PM |
Where are they situated? Can u give details, so I can check them out, maybe take a few photos and send them to the Post Courier or publish them here? I see him in Cairns a lot (recently at Cairns Central), but thought he was coming here for medical treatment.
Also, do you know where all the other leader's and former leaders properties are located? All I really know for sure are the ones owned by the late Bill Skate in City View. On second thoughts I think I'll ask a taxi driver.
Engan Premier owns house Port Douglas
|May 20 2008, 6:48 AM |
Peter Ipatas owns a house worth a million dollars at Port Douglas. If you turn into Douglas before the main left turn from Cairns you will find a small street with very rich houses. Ipatas owns a house in this street and it is talk of Douglas that Ipatas lets his friends take over the house occasionally.
Thanks. I'll have a look for it over the weekend. Know of any others I can check out and photograph?
UNSETTLED COUNCILLORS OF KOMO-MARGARIMA
|August 26 2011, 2:32 PM |
It is of the paramount concerns that many of our councillors are being misled, disempowered and misunderstood fairly by our prominent leaders and bureaucrats within the electorate. The credentials of all individuals, families and communities are uploaded by the councillors and they encountered every burdens & blames, blessings and curse from all levels of communities. They are the only basic government agents for the people, by the people and with the people.
I am disappointed to see council presidents including many of our councillors flooding into urban centres like Mt. Hagen, Lae, and Port Moresby roaming around for fun and pleasure without knowing their tasks and responsibilities. I appeal to all LLG Presidents including councillors to STOP making Claims out of your Title and misusing people’s fund.
Remember! You either carry Blessings or Curse from your people. The fate of our people is in your hand and be cautious to reach your hand out of the way which may not be people’s wish.
In this case, it is my understanding to blame the state, government agencies on Provincial & Local Level Affairs and especially the Member for Komo-Margarima electorate to oversee the actual cause and alleviate immediately. This trend of issues being carried on for the last 3 to 4 consecutive terms of General Elections and never has one attempted to solve.
Remember! Councillors are like mother hen where every little chick’s follows. The chicks are well fed and protected every time because mother hen is settled and well looked after by the Owner. The question is if the owner is not settled, should the chicks be well fed and protected? Our leaders have no idea why mother hen would deserted her own chick without food and security? The fundamental needs and issues of the communities are well versed by the councillors; however, the government intervention of basic service delivery never ends up well.
It is time to know and understand the important role of councillors, what authority or powers should they have and to what extend should they perform? What roles are they obliged to do and how they (councillors) are served?
It is time to look into councillors as a Role Model and an Agent of Change in the Community. They are the Real Agent of Government who should fairly be treated and recognized for Delivery of Government Basic Services but NOT seen as the Trust Account for the community they represents. Many foolish MPs have gone through Cash Delivery of Basic Services to Councillors and Presidents which have no trace records of funds used.
I am strongly urging the Member for Komo-Margarima and other prominent Hela Leaders to consider all Councillors reside in Port Moresby to return home and serve the community. They are the local community-oriented leaders who should be empowered and treated well then any other individuals.

Why is everyone allowing ipatas to do what he wants with little girls? are the girls underage or overage?
I guess, when you are a politician here you are very much above the law.
if these allegations were directed at a politician in Australia or other developed nations, he would most definately resigned while the police wud thoroughly investigate.
guess this would never happen in Png where the politicians here hold officer , while the investigation is going on.
