Reader riposte: PNG home-grown constitution

20 December 2011 12:27

John Ballard, a Visiting Fellow at ANU, writes:

Andrew Farran isn't aware of the fact that PNG, unlike almost all other post-colonial regimes, produced a home-grown constitution. The Constitutional Planning Committee and first Somare Government worked on this over a period of two-and-a-half years and the detailed results were very much of their choosing, not at Australia's suggestion.
