BREAKING NEWS! JAMES MARAPE RESIGNS AS FINANCE MINISTER AND LEADER OF GOVERNMENT BUSINESS!

BREAKING NEWS! JAMES MARAPE RESIGNS AS
FINANCE MINISTER AND LEADER OF GOVERNMENT
BUSINESS!
////////
For the Love of God and Country; authorized for release.
Hon James Marape resigns as FM and Leader of Govt
Business
***********
It is with regret that I announce my resignation as
Minister of State in the O’niell Abel government. Since
July 2012, I have been conferred by Prime Minister Peter
O’Neill this high privilege to serve my country Papua
New Guinea as Minister for Finance and Leader of
Government’s Parliamentary Business, but today I
resign from these occupations.
This decision is not easy to make and despite cultural
and personal ties, the level of trust between Prime
Minister and myself is at the lowest after his office and
associates continue to send negative signals on their
lack of trust on me.
Whilst we don’t have any personal differences, we do
differ on some work and policy related matters; these
includes policies like wether getting more local content
participation in our gas, oil sector, or mining industry, or
on the empowerment of our local businesses; or on
resource laws reconfiguration for wealth generation for
our country, or for lack of honoring existing resource
projects agreements like the 4.27% of Kroton shares for
5 Provincial Governments and their Land Owners, and
other issues.
I have raised my views and concerns on those areas yet
I have come to realize that most of my advices find no
traction and is non compatible with Prime Minister’s
world view, thus it is only fitting that I exit cabinet.
I am not in cabinet for its comforts but to contribute to
national development and having completed some
reforms in Finance Department over the last 7 years
including better expenditure control mechanism as well
as setting up my signature reform in procurement laws
that includes local content emphasis , I feel the time is
now right for me to move out of Cabinet so that fresh
minds can come into cabinet.
It will be remiss of me not to apologize to my
colleagues in Parliament, family and friends, my staff
and all my people of Pori Tari and Hela for surprising
you all with this sudden announcement.
I thank Prime Minister O’niell for the opportunity to
serve in his Cabinet and wish him all the very best as
he tries to guide our country in such continual hard
times, some of which are natural hard times, some are
man made. With this I hereby resign as Minister of State
but I look forward to serving the country as a Member
of a Parliament.
Honorable James Marape MP
Member for Tari Pori
