Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has called for proper debate before cultural relics be taken out of parliament house.
In an interview with EMTV he said he had made his position known to the speaker.
He said the people have the right to be consulted before such measures are taken.
Parliament house was first opened in 1984. Built in the style of the Maprik Haus Tambaran. The architecture is based on spirit houses found near Wewak, in the East Sepik province.
The speaker of parliament, Theo Zurenouc, has had a strong conviction that the spirits of the cultural relics are the cause of all the evil and corruption that plagues our country.
He has been ridding parliament of the ancestral relics.
Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill, does not agree with what the speaker has done.
He says the artefacts reflect a time in the history of our nation.
He however adds he understands the argument being put forward by Christians, but he believes there is a new way of believing.
