I Kanda ku Oh!
PRIME Minister Sir Michael Somare yesterday axed his close friend Don Polye from the job of deputy Prime Minister and appointed another Engan MP and Foreign Affairs Minister Sam Abal as the new DPM.
While Minister Polye still maintains his Works, Transport and Civil Aviation Ministry, his removal as DPM is expected to spark a revolt from within the Highlands bloc of the National Alliance Party who claimed last night that the PM acted in breach of the party constitution which says the job of Deputy PM should be given to one of the four regional parliamentary leaders. Mr Abal is not a regional leader of the Highlands bloc and is therefore not a heir-apparent of the deputy PMs job. Sir Michaels axe also fell on Attorney-General and Member for Rigo Mr Ano Pala who was replaced by the Governor of Madang and former Chief Justice Sir Anorld Amet. Sir Arnold flew to Kokopo yesterday on the government-owned falcon jet where he was sworn in by the Governor-General Sir Paulias Matane who is on holiday in his home province.
Agriculture Minister John Hickey who had not been well lately had also been removed and his replacement is not yet known at this stage.
It is not known exactly why Mr Polye had been removed. Earlier in the week, the Kandep MP said he had cut-short his electoral visit to be with the Prime Minister and support him after this newspaper broke the news of Sir Michaels likely referral to a leadership tribunal. Mr Polye claimed he was a close friend of Sir Michael.
Yesterday this newspaper exclusively reported again that the Public Prosecutor Jim Wala Tamati will be making a decision on the fate of the Prime Minister before the weeks end. If he refers the Prime Minister to the Chief Justice to appoint a Leadership Tribunal, Sir Michael will step down from office and allow his new deputy and Member for Wabag to become the Acting Prime Minister. Insiders also were of the view that Mr Polye was most probably not ready yet to be acting PM and therefore the Prime Minister acted responsibly to handover the reigns to a more mature and stable Mr Abal a former foreign service officer and son of pre-independence political arch-rival of Somare, the late Sir Tei Abal. In the case of Mr Palas demise from the job of being the countrys top legal adviser, it comes after this newspapers exclusive coverage yesterday of the K15.5m payment to Madang businessman Mr Peter Yama.
Finance Secretary Mr Gabriel Yer wrote in his letter of explanation to the government that he was powerless to stop the payment as a compromise had been reached between the Attorney-General, Solicitor General, Deputy Solicitor General and Mr Yama. Mr Yer had also prepared a report on the payment to the Prime Minister.
Last night it was learnt that, the Bank of PNG was unable to put a stop payment order on the cheque that was paid to Mr Yama on November 17 and is currently held in his lawyers trust account.

There is no such thing as Political Stability ...Grand Chief ann people
December 9 2010, 6:23 AM
Every Leader wants stability to govern and ensure that all their plans are not thwarted...that's the game.
However when greed, the love for self power, self glorification and deceit comes in, this is what PNG gets.
The old man is still at it...he still can not contain deputies who want his job...and a bigger blunder awaits him...and that is...he might end up losing everything...
Oi...Papa please leave the top post gracefully...and spend your last days in life with grace. Political stability is not everything...we can enjoy you better also if you leave the highest office on a high note.
Now we all agree that there is no such thing as Political Stability.
Somare is still in control regardless of the changes, both PM's and DPM's
endowed authority resides within him as the political event unfolds to this present times.This leaves me to say that Somare (Jnr) has finally completed
his next heir to the thrown strategy by destroying Polye-yet not so powerful but is seen as the next PM.
Somare did succesfully by demoting first Dr. Marrat,and Maladina outside of NA party lines and did likewise within NA party lines to first Bart Philmon, Dr.Puka, first as minister and as DPM, Pruaicht, Teistein.
Polye was the final blow not so to say at an expense of somare(Snr)long pending referrals..but Polye is now seen as the sacrificial lamp which neither Polye offers for it nor deserves it that way..Polye was strong but remained loyal to somare whilst in the event failed and or ignored to stand up for his capability when the chances were there.
He missed two important political events crosses before him.
First, he should have been the next PM or DPM when he refused to join force with Dr. Temo
in the recent defect to opposition..If he was obsessed with democratic rule then this was comming his way.."better to remain DPM and hopefully become the PM when Somare retires then opting for vote-of no-confidence though-he thought"..
Second, He is the DPM and the next legitimate acting PM if anything happens with the PM or if PM is away from active duties. Is he gonner claim that status through appropriate action? Perhaps seek constitutional and legal clarification through OLIPAC lines.or is he gonner except and be loyal..if not he's not putting his hands up neither.
Constitutionally, he is the next acting PM and democratically he misses his already supported heavy handed oppositions offer if he also defects to opposition and allow the vote to take place. He rejects these two choices just to allow Somare to demote him not by one step but two.That is removing from him DPM and two Ministerial portfolios.
Polye is finish from DPM, acting PM or PM and even NA leadership - not in his way anymore..he is finish, neither Sam Abal is the likely long term PM there after..he is only there to relinquish the position before the 2012 election. he is soft and of course a real Somare ally and perhaps history best explains that..Sir Tei and Somare ties unlike Polye claiming Somare a "good friend of him" A soft covert politics it seems.
Yes, we can say now that Somare has now transferred PM's position to Sam Abal another Engan politician.Clear ride-sepiks have now given power to the Engans as far as PNG politics explains.while on the same token, We applaud Somare's swift-full actions to let go the PM's post and words of congratulation to Mr Abal may looms in the coming days.
Abal and Polye including Ipatas who is also playing a pro-active role in the rise and fall of one of his provincial man must not concede that power resides with Engans. The whole political development reflex to us another Sir Pato kakaraya and Sir Albert Kipalan battle foe GG years ago..It seems the same spirit is real and alive in these Engan politicians and if it so so, im afraid that Engan spirit may not be for long and more to that a means by which it has the potential to create more pain,bitterness and destruction.
These leaves me to say that Abal/Ipatas combination is already imminent taking on Polye groomed.An early political development meant not only for the good of the province and country but also far more destruction is expected.It is shaping and its starting from Enga.Enga is already destroyed and the rest of the highlands provinces will follow suit..
Neither, Abal Polye, Ipatas all from Enga and or any other current highlands politicians are best positioned for the PM's post apart from Aurtur somare - come 2012.
I see that this is now the end of the name Somare.
He will surely be found guilty and will be dismissed from public office. NA will disintegrate and will never be a force to reckon with.
NA survives and thrived because of Sir Micheal. Nobody else can have the ability to hold the party together.
What is so 'Graceful' about Som-ashole? He XXXXXXX threatened to kill a member of parliment, nepotistic and bled png dry......grace is beyond a person who behaves this way.....he has squandered the opportunity to really help png and I hope he gets all that he deserves in the next round of court cases....painim grace lo bomona...koi koi lasi.

It is clear the PM has so much to hide and he wants to ensure whoever will listen to him gets into the throne, this has nothing to do with stability or trustworthiness. Abal appears to be a geniune leader but more like a yo-yo that the old Somare can manipulate.
I am sure NA and the Somares have alot of explaining to do with the influx of Chinese, Ramu-Nickle, RH Logging activities, Taiwan scandal, Singapore Bank account scandal, Somare's Cairns property deal, Carbon deals, Kroton 1, 2, and new ugly Petroleum company that is being set up and so much more.
The old Somare is going to fall off his chair anytime soon, when does he actually get to live in Cairns, in the $3M property?
Isn't it a fact that wherever your investments are held, that is where your heart will be?. If politicians and cohorts are buying properties and sending their kids and wives to live in Australia then their hearts will not be in serving the people of PNG, we are sinking ship! The people must bail themselves out!
Trustworthiness and stability is what leaders want, it is what investors want, it is what beneficiaries want. Malaysia and Singapore thrived because of trustworthiness and stability. PNG is told all over the world that if it needs to progress...PNG needs stability.
Right now...we have a lot of unstable leaders who are just yoyos...you said it.
We have the PM giving the donkeys carrots so that they can jump any old how...even if they break their own necks. Polye trusted Somare too much until Somare broke Polye's neck. Polye will now bleed...and it will be for a long time. Does not Abal realise that too!. Abal ambitiously wants to be PM too! Abal will want stability. Will Abal get stability? Somare made Abal...so Somare will manipulate Abal...it just demonstrates that we do not have stability in political leadership in PNG. That is my point.
PNG politics is not stable and the world needs to know that. The Organic Law on Political Parties (OLIPAC) was supposed to bring stability...but did it achieve that? We can say partly...But who is at it again? It is the leaders that always want to flout the system.
Am just fed up with the political yoyos in Parliament who are just not stable.
By the way...who said yoyos are supposed to be stable?
Tell us some more Naiks if stability is unimportant with your "yoyo" vocabulary.
ENGAN POLITICS creeping in and Somares playing it really well. - divide and rule - tactic!
If Abal was wise, honest, strong christian(pastor) as he claims to be, he shouldn't have accepted the offer! you can't be jealous of a fellow brother who at the same time happens to be your regional party leader! NO RESPECT! regardless. Its a SHAME, MR. ABAL!
Next time, Jnr Somare will castrate your testicles and you'll be infertile coz YOU AREN'T STRONG, YOU'RE WEAK!!!
the most honorable thing to do was "No sir, I'm content where i am..."
