Apart from having a good deputy prime minister put up as the next Papua New Guinea prime minister, there is stiil another political option that may seem a controversial outcome, but not impossible.
This option could be another record breaker for grand chief Michael Somare that will be unbeatable in both PNG and Commonwealth politics.
If Somare is really serious about elevating the status of PNG women in his twilight years of politics, he will now give his job to the best-performing MP in the coalition government, Dame Carol Kidu.
The Dame as an MP has no equal.
This only woman MP's actions speak louder than words.
Dame Carol Kidu is ably supported by a good department secretary running an effective state agency than most of her MP peers.
This decisive action by grand chief Somare will be in full recognition for the tireless efforts of a lone women MP in parliament (and one of PNG’s best lawmakers in recent times).
This will no doubt upset the men in parliament, but will soon get over it to see that good governance, accountability, responsibility and ‘sanity’ return to both parliament; and government before the 2012 national elections.
Finally, I predict PM Michael Somare is not yet ready to quit politics in 2011 and before the 2012 national elections.
Importantly, there are still many outstanding political reforms left by former PM, Sir Mekere, that this government has yet to introduce any real substantial improvements , hence; this is no time to be quitting politics.
But today, PNG has the wrong political leadership running the country.
It should not be this way at all for our country.
So who’s going to do it for PNG?
