“There are also a number of key features of the National Executive Council which reflects my thoughts about the priority agenda for the government to pursue,” PM Marape said.
“The greatest demonstration of our government’s priority is in the make-up of our Cabinet.
“This is where the various ministries deliver to us outcomes that are of the highest priority in our country.
“It clearly shows the strong intention to ensure that priority activities are given the required prominence in the NEC appointments.
“In the last one week we worked on reconfiguring the NEC structure to demonstrate the priorities of the government in terms of how the government should perform its tasks, and to place specific emphasis to important functions that reflect the key agenda of the government and its coalition partners.
“We are moving away from just going with the usual National Executive Council structure, and wanted to ensure that the NEC make up clearly reflects our priorities.”
PM Marape used the opportunity to review the performances of agency heads and seek to find the right mix of political leadership to augment and compliment the appointed leadership.
“Because this is a continuing government some ministers have been reappointed which reflects their talent and their strong performances in the last Cabinet. We are incredibly privileged to be in a position where a large number of our ministers have been re-elected back into Parliament, and are available to continue as ministers in this government.”
The review of agency performances and achievements have allowed to find the best arrangement that would ensure that important result areas are achieved.
This review will now take on a more permanent feature in our ongoing work to ensure that agencies and agencies leaders are doing what they are supposed to be doing, the Prime Minister said.
