CHAN: NO ONE WITH DUAL CITIZENSHIP SHOULD HOLD PUBILC OFFICE IN PNG

Responding to PNG Foreign MInister

by admin
The Prime Minister should have recalled Justin Tkatchenko and sacked him immediately, Sir Julius Chan said last night.
“He should not stand down and wait around for a while until things quieten down and then get back in,” the former prime minister and current New Ireland governor said.
Sir Julius was commenting on Tkatchenko’s action on Friday when he succumbed to mounting pressure and stepped down as foreign affairs minister.
Prime Minister James Marape accepted the decision and took up the responsibilities of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
Tkatchenko said in his efforts to protect his daughter, Savanah, from public anger over her TikTok video, he directed his ‘primitive animals’ comment at social media trolls.
He said his comments were not “intended for the people of Papua New Guinea”. Sir Julius added: “What he (Tkatchenko) said is unthinkable. He is out of his mind. He just can’t say those things.
“The foreign affairs minister is more powerful than the prime minister in the eyes of the world.”
Sir Julius said Marape should have sacked him or asked for his resignation.
“There are a lot of Papua New Guineans around. He is not the only one,” Sir Julius said.
Not satisfied with having his ministerial head, there are other representations, by way of letters, to the Ombudsman Commission to investigate possible breaches of the Leadership Code by Tkatchenko’s inclusion of his daughter on the official delegation and certain official duties she undertook while in England. A law firm has taken carriage of that.
