As a layman, I see "Self Determination" or "secession" as one; parting away from PNG's governance and looking after ourselves.
It is quite sad to note that all our past MPs over the many years have been tight lipped on Bougainville's destination. I will be surprised that the new term members will change this past practice. One of the members has to be the Donald Trump (a radical politician, a patriotic bougainvillian) to make this change. History suggests that past events on Bougainville's fight for freedom was undertaken by the PEOPLE and for the PEOPLE. Patriotic citizens of Bougainville will continue to strive to achieve the ultimate goal "FREEDOM".
Finally ARoB government needs to do the small things right and put these in order to achieve the larger goals.

"Self determination" and "secession" are two different concepts though they may mean the same to a layman. Self determination may include autonomy, independence or free association with the mother state -eg between Cook island and NZ.
Secession is total independence. NA party policy to fight for self determination may mean to keep Bougainville remain autonomous and not necessarily to support Bougainville's secession.
