AUCKLAND (Pacific Media Watch/Southern Cross): Pacific Media Watch freedom project editor Kendall Hutt talks about Papua New Guinea’s upcoming elections with PNG citizens Stephanie and Kenneth Sageo-Tupunga on 95bFM’s weekly radio programme Southern Cross, hosted by The Wire’s Amanda Robinson.
Interviewed by Hutt, both highlighted PNG’s history of corruption and its ties with past elections, female representation in politics and whether it would become a reality in PNG’s Parliament, and the rising role of social media.
Both said they felt the country was “fed up with corruption”, but stated they found hope in rising female representation, particularly in politics.
They also reflected on their hopes and dreams for PNG ahead of voting starting this Saturday, in which they hoped there will be a change in government.
"Right now it’s anybody’s game,” Stephanie Sageo-Tupunga said.
