Former Kavieng MP Ben Micah today (Sunday, June 05, 2011) announced the formation of a new political movement in the build-up to next year’s election.
To be known as Movement For Change, the movement will be across party lines, and will be looking at making a change from the last 35 years of independence.
Micah made the announcement at a two-day workshop for intending candidates for the 2012 elections titled ‘Winning strategies for a successful election campaign’ at Aku Lodge in Boroko.
It will be officially launched in Goroka next month.
“This is going to be across party lines,” he said.
“We are setting up a movement independent of political parties.
“I believe that if we work together, we can mobilise the people.
“We want to talk now about fundamental change.”
The movement will be officially launched in Goroka next month.
Opposition advisor Reg Renagi said people wanted a complete paradigm shift from the last 35 years.
“We need this grassroots movement,” he said.
“Thirty-five years is a long time.
“Right now the ruling regime has lost the plot.
“We need the support of both sides of parliament.”
