Opposition Leader Don Polye warns that Mt Hagen City Authority law is a flaw and that many public servants will be put under more pressure in line of their duty.
Speaking at the city authority manager Pius Pim’s funeral in Mt Hagen, Mr Polye said the health of many other public servants in the province would be affected.
He added that the law was designed only to suit political interests and not the people’s.
Polye said he used to wander why there was always a commission of inquiry into plane crashes.
Now, he said, he knew the reason because to save other lives in future.
“The same mechanical fault can be avoided in future to save others,” he said.
The Opposition Leader said the Opposition MPs voted against the bill in Parliament.
He further said when late Pim was in Port Moresby, the deceased told him about working under pressure from this bad law.
He graced the family and relatives with a cash contribution of K11,000 towards the expenses of the funeral.
“On behalf of our alternative government, our Triumph Heritage Empowerment party supporters and executives, the people of Kandep and his family, I convey my condolence to his relatives and family.
“We have lost the country’s asset. It is regrettable,” a sadden Polye said.
Late Pim died due to high blood pressure and heart attack.
When in government, he said, he would review the bill to suit the welfare of the people as it was not the case.
Meanwhile, community leaders commended their hagen-raised son for leading a vibrant Opposition ever in the country.
