100812MEMBER JOINS OPPOSITION
By Aloysius Laukai
The member for NORTH BOUGAIUNVILLE, LOUTA ATOI yesterday explained why he opted to join BELDEN NAMAH and his group in the opposition ranks.
He told New Dawn FM that he had to move with BELDEN NAMAH and his group as he believed in the leadership of new breed leaders like BELDEN NAMAH who had the heart for the people of Bougainville.
MR. ATOI said he did not want to work with old politicians like the former Prime Ministers, PAIAS WINGTI, SIR JULIUS CHAN and the Chief himself SIR MICHAEL SOMARE because he strongly believes that PAPUA NEW GUINEA desperately needs new and vibrant leaders to get it into the next level.
He called on the people of North Bougainville to remember that he will still have the same level of Government services and funds to deliver to his people.
MR. ATOI however said that under the leadership of BELDEN NAMAH the opposition has organized itself to provide the check and balance to the government of Papua New Guinea.
AND he also said that as a member of the opposition he would be in a better position to question the government on issues affecting Bougainville today.
He said if BELDEN NAMAH becomes the Prime Minister, Bougainville’s issues can be addressed properly and quickly instead of the speed the current process is going on and on.
