Is this honestly the best list you can come up with? Looks to me like a buncha 'me first' type people who care more about their sexual satisfaction than living a Christian family life. Sad for them. They do not deserve to be held up in the eyes of anyone.

Well, this is what they have been putting up since independence.
Not forgetting Tonny Buhupe(former MP) with several wives making a come back.

No wonder the district has not gone anyway. All they have been doing is to satisfy the lustful desires. Spending all the money on ladies.

The only person I see is Nicholson Lapin. Who is a capable youngman, who will if given the mandate, can make a real difference. He is God fearing and is a great achiever.

Telefomin, in the next couple of years will be riding on a mining and oil/gas boom and I pray that you will come up with a better candidate who can lead and bring some hope to the most isolated and undeveloped district in the country.

You can do better than this.

Nicholson Lapin is the one September 5 2011, 5:21 PM


If you want to see delvelopment through honest and hard working leadership, then Nicholson Lapin is your man. I was with him in my Unitech days and he was of very good and Christian character - I know his brother too Reuben Lapin. All of which come from very strong christian backgrounds. I am not saying they are perfect but Telefomin will have a good start with Nicholson - atleast we know who he is.....May God Bless Telefomin.

Blockhead - why don't you go and contest ...We outsiders know Nicholson obviously better than you. Stop comparing Anderson Aigiru to him? Can't you shut up and start somewhere to evaluate your potential candidates to bring change ? The good comments about Nicholson are coming from around PNG so if I were you I would look in and try and see if he is really is the person that we are talking about .... Give me an example of any corrupt deals or allegations he has and I will list Aigiru's laundy list to you ...Lets be constructive here okay.

Get it in your head.

Telefomin District will make another big mistake by not voting him in for 2012. He is the only most capable person who can bring your district foward. He is a people person who can get along well with all walks of people and I don't see him letting you down. I wish I can be there to campaign for him come 2012. God bless Telefomin District.

There is never "enough said" if there's nothing anyone has to hide. Let everyone come out with as many details as possible, that way we won't get fooled again when we elect a beautiful pineapple and later find out that it's totally rotten inside.

Transparency is the key to a better civil society in PNG. Let that transparency start here.

Support Nicholson Lapin September 6 2011, 1:18 PM


I am from Simbu and know Nicholson while in Unitech. His wife is an accountant and he is a mining engineer, working in Australia. He is highly paid and does not need to go to politics. However, if wants to sacrifice his job and go for politics, he has something in his heart to offer.

His non drinker, non smoker married only one wife, non betel nut chewer, non gambler. He goes to church with Baptist Church.

Let us support him.

Gentlemen ... I know Nicholson from the Unitech days as well. Very fine soft spoken gentleman with sobber habits and strong Christian background. Happily married now with a great job in Austraila - He is still a good man even today. Teleformin, if you want to move forward and progress, Nicholson is your young leader to take you forward and bring development. I hope he will leave is well paid job to contest the 2012 Election ... I know he will because he has a humble heart to serve with respect. Seriously consider him guys and you educated ellites of Telefomin, you may want to join hands with him to ensure his victory and move your electorate forward, which has been neglected for ages.

Please consider this young man.

Wake up call September 7 2011, 10:31 PM


Well discussed, you good people of PNG. I wish my people at home could think and analyse candidates more carefully before they cast their votes.
All they go for is wantoks and easy handouts every election- what a shame. When will you people of Telefomin wake up from your ignorance?
Let us humble ourselves and ask God to reveal his chosen one instead of bringing people forward and asking Him to bless. Let us not dwell on people's physical attributes. There is obviously a spiritual problem within the district that hinders us from seeing from God's perspective.
Maybe the chosen one is still out there....KEEP SEARCHING from within your hearts.

Telefomin primitive selection of candidates September 7 2011, 10:43 PM


Ask God to reveal his chosen one? Mate, that stuff disappeared from today's developed countries hundreds of years ago. Instead, people in developed countries reckon that God gave people brains to use to pick the right people themselves. I reckon it's going to be a more effective strategy if we get off our bums, stop expecting God to do everything for us, and start doing stuff on using our own God given brains. Just a thought.

Harby, I am not a primitive. You will be surprised if I reveal my true identity. I do not think you realise that there is moral decay out even in the developed world. Human beings have a limit in their capacity to choose well and that is where the spiritual factor comes in. You will never succeed if you work off your human brains only. There is a Higher Being out there who can help us to have a better tomorrow.

Re: Telefomin primitive selection of candidates September 8 2011, 7:14 AM


They choose well enough in developed countries to pick leaders more often that are far superior to what we pick. That's through the fault of our non-thinking, non-analytical brains. I don't for a moment believe that we were born stupid. I think we make ourselves stupid by the "listen don't talk" classroom environment and the dumb attitude that "if we ask a question, everyone will see that we're stupid".

We already do enough praying. We need to do more action in developing our brains so that we at least catch up with the better analysis of candidates seen in other countries.

The elements in a person to analise are far greater and unpredictable beyond human imagination. A human being can be an angel one instant and a devil in a flicker of a second. That is my point, no matter how well we say we know a person today - that person will not be the same tomorrow.

Re: Nicholson is your man for 2012 and beyond

Nicholson is in Australia for a reason - to make money.

He cares more about his personal wealth than helping the people.

He would make a very poor leader for the Telefomin area particularly.

Re: Nicholson is your man for 2012 and beyond

December 2 2011, 11:22 AM 

Mate, you're obviously a wantok or very good friend of Nicholsons, which is why you're not listening to reason.

Fact is that any PNGean who goes overseas to make money instead of staying back home and sacrificing on behalf of the country is certainly NOT going to be thinking of the people if he were elected into parliament.

He'd still be thinking of his personal salary and his personal wealth.

We don't want to have such a non-sacrificing person to represent Telefomin.

You can continue with your superficial rhetoric as long as you want, but the facts about Nicholson indicate right now that he thinks more about his personal wealth and comfort than that of others.

Disagree with me? Start sharing some stories about his life that indicate otherwise.

Over to you.

He is there on his own merit just like another other professional working in Australia. Thumbs up to them all!! Working overseas doesn't mean that he has his heart off his people. It is people like you that is not giving him the opportunity. A close examination of all your candidates will make you want to support him.

Who is your alternative? Bring fwd your man and we see. He would be another one of those still hiding in the caves of Telefomin - without exposure and experience.

These Oksies have a plan and they will win back the power they have held for years. For Telefomin LLG to succeed, then they have to come up with one candidate - else it's sitting member again or go back to Oksie land.

To us villagers we do not need the likes of Nicholson. You have gone to look for greener pastures for you and your family.How much have you contributed to the charity in Oksapmin. Have you assisted to build churches, schools, and even assisted to educate your immediate family members. We know you are a foreigner in Oksapmin so do not try luck in elections. People are not fools. Remember actions speak louder than words.If you want to be a politician come back home and live amongst your people so they will know you are genuine. They will definitely give you the mandate.

Your mind as narrow as the valleys in Oksapmin

May 16 2012, 9:41 PM 

Mate, your mind is as narrow as those valleys in Oksapmin. This district (Telefomin/ Oksapmin) is a failed District and will remain like that because of such lunatics like you who can not think outside the box and make informed decision. Making decision on hand outs and cargo cult mentality is what people in Telefomin/Oksapmin are good at. No wondering this district is the least developed district in the country.
