MARAPE APPEALS TO FELLOW LEADERS TO JOIN CAMP

“We are steady, we are focused, we come with one common voice and that is to take back PNG, taking it away from a corporate few,” says Marape.

It’s a time for young leaders to step forward with the wisdom of the seniors, and lead the country out of the turmoil that have been created under the leadership of the prime minister.

That was the message the member for Tari Pori James Marape sent out to his fellow young leaders who are currently camped at the Crown Hotel with Prime Minister Peter O’Neill.

“Today is not a time we play ethnicity politics, today is no time to play small jostling of power politics,” said Marape.

“Here at team Laguna we are all about gathering likeminded leaders assembling here and we set up number to go into parliament tomorrow and take charge of proceeding of parliament tomorrow onwards, and for the next one week.”

“We are steady, we are focused, we come with one common voice and that is to take back PNG, taking it away from a corporate few,” he said.

Marape added that at this stage no candidate for the alternate prime minister has been selected. Talks will continue today and one should be announced later this afternoon.  

Meanwhile, the Laguna camp is expecting a few more members to join, but at this stage it is still not clear as to who will be crossing over.
