PNG 2012 National Election Delay

Our country has plunged into a myriad of questions with our Parliament’s decision to delay the national elections by 6 months, so….

  1. Is the delay Constitutionally legal?
  2. If it isn’t legal do we have time for a judicial review?
  3. Do we even have a legal Supreme Court bench to hear any judicial reviews?
  4. How much financial damage can a government do in 6 months?
  5. Will Bob Carr act on his threat of sanctions?
  6. Will Julie Bishop still see us economic partnership material?
  7. Will O’Neill or Namah survive the elections if it happens?
  8. Could they delay further after 6 months since no one can trust any politician now.
  9. Can the PNG people show their feelings about the situation like they did in the sand line crises when they forced a PM to resign.

The only thing we have control over now is who we can vote in, if and when the elections happens.
