Stop the Stealing

Corruption is a huge problem in PNG. Up to 50% of the government's annual budget is stolen while ordinary people can't access even basic services.
The health and education facilities that do exist are extremely run down and transport infrastructure is crumbling while a small elite of politicians and bureaucrats live in extravagant comfort.
ACT NOW! is campaigning for a new anti-corruption body and implementation of previous inquiry findings.
