Marape-Rosso Government, Papua New Guinea.

Papua New Guinea Prime Minister James Marape today announced the appointment of his full cabinet. The line-up reflected experience, continuity, and regional balance. The PM said Members of Parliament were chosen carefully from a pool of talented and capable leaders in government.

With almost all portfolios distributed to all provinces, Prime Minister Marape said there are also a number of key features of the National Executive Council which reflected his thoughts about the priority agenda for the government to pursue.

Speaking after the swearing in ceremony at the Government House today, PM Marape said the greatest demonstration of the government’s priority is in the make-up of the 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 NEC structure, and wanted to ensure that the NEC make up clearly reflects our priorities,” he said.

The Prime Minister also 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 talents 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 available to continue as Ministers in this government,” said the PM.
