Is the focus only on physical abuse or are people in PNG also aware of other forms of abuse, such as emotional, mental, financial, etc?

This is the root cause: "Some people with very traditional beliefs think they have the right to control their partner and that women aren’t equal to men."

This was an interesting read and as you said, good recommendations remain just that without appropriate action.

I agree. It's about time that stories are told on the impacts of the scheme to families in rural and urban communities, according to their viewpoints.

The scheme has not been without problems - not unexpectedly so for something of this nature, and now fears that covid-19 could be the final straw, if not the killer blow, is alarming. Media have reported the problems with scheme, which is fair enough, but there are many success stories as well. Now’s the time to step up and report them, especially Pacific media. Besides dry figures and analysis, human interest stories. Talk to the families who have benefited from the scheme. How did it change their lives? How do they feel about shutting it down? How will they be affected?

Thank you for this insight, RPNGC is not given enough credit and publicity for their positive work in rural areas to ensure community harmony. In collaboration with village courts representatives, RPNGC are seen by many as the representatives of government in the absence of other formal state institutions. They give confidence to a community where leadership, confidence, trust and consensus is so important.

I agree that section 63 of the Act does not provide a clear and concise meaning as to whether the PM is to be elected from the party with the largest number of members afer a VONC. This section clearly needs to be reviewed. Thanks for information.
