Triumph Heritage Empowerment (THE) party announced 80 candidates for Open and Regional seats around the country in the 2012 National General Elections.
The announcement was made by party leader and Minister for Finance Don Polye before 1000 supporters at the Eriku Oval in Lae yesterday.
Mr Polye said after intense consideration by the party council, it has resolved to endorse 80 candidates in the 111-seat parliament.
Supported by his deputy party leaders, Madang Governor and Raicoast MP James Gau (Mamose) and Western Highlands Governor Tom Olga (Highlands), the party leader urged other candidates to work together with those endorsed by the party.
“I am humbled to say that the party received more than 10 to 20 applications for intending candidates for an Open or Regional seat. And it was extremely hard for the council to make the decision. I urged those who have missed out to stay with the party and work together to form the new government,” Mr Polye said.
He added that since having experienced the system of governance with the former National Alliance regime for the last 10 years, he broke away to form THE party.
Mr Polye said the party needed innovative and youthful leadership, a generation of leadership that would bring the country forward from its current doldrums.
“After being in the Government for the last 10 years, I have assessed the government system and how it works. We need to address the current widespread of corruption that is crippling the nation to its knees,” the Minister said.
Mr Polye said the party’s vision was to empower individual family units – the husband, wife and children so that the family would have confidence and resources to contain social and economical challenges.
Meanwhile, Messrs Olga and Gau also shared same sentiment saying THE party intends to form the new government after the elections.
Both deputy leaders said they were committed to Mr Polye and THE party to ensure that the party forms the next government for the betterment of the country.
