--- Papua New Guinea Opposition leader Don Polye has announced in Parliament his alternate Cabinet before presenting his 54-page policy statement to the nation.
Polye’s shadow cabinet included Opposition Whip, Deputy Opposition Leader Sam Basil, who also shadow minister for planning, state-owned enterprises, agriculture and lands and physical planning.
Vanimo-Green MP Belden Namah remains shadow minister for forest, housing, defence and police while Rabaul MP Allan Marat maintained his shadow ministry for justice and attorney-general, labour, public service and higher education.
Porgera-Laiagap MP Nixon Mangape will oversee the commerce and trade, Pacific Games, petroleum and energy while Rai Coast MP James Gau had the works and transport.
Kikori MP Mark Maipakai held the finance and Bougainville affairs while Polye himself had treasury, foreign affairs and correctional services.
Polye also presented a 54-page Opposition eight-point policy which was extensively debated by the Government .
“The Opposition’s policies have been designed at the back-drop of the impacts of the great global recession acerbated by abruptly falling oil and commodity prices and the desperate desire for better economic management to create that sustainable economy for PNG,” Polye said..
