Ex-NA members criticise party

Source: The National, Thursday 10th May 2012
GRAND Chief Sir Michael Somare’s National Alliance Party got a verbal bashing from its former members during the Triumph Heritage Empowerment Party campaign launch in Lae.
Don Polye, T.H.E Party leader and national treasurer, was joined by his deputy party leaders Madang Governor James Gau and Western Highlands Governor Tom Olga to address supporters at the Niall Oval in Eriku.
The event also saw a Sepik singsing group participating with a crocodile dance – seen as an attack on the NA party whose stronghold is the Momase region.
The leaders despite having respect for Sir Michael, said they were convinced to break away from the NA party because it was leading the government on bad advice.
Polye acknowledged Raicoast MP Gau for leading the breakaway.
He said he panicked a bit prior to exiting Sir Michael’s party “because NA was so powerful.”
He said Olga was a young and dynamic leader.
Gau said for 36 years, the country had different parties with different policies but the wealth of the nation was not shared properly resulting in an increase in poverty among the people.
Olga said the nation was at the crossroads and needed quality leaders.
He said for the past nine years, a person from Momase had been the prime minister.
Olga declared that Polye would become the next prime minister because he had been the deputy prime minister on two occasions.
