PNG's retiring PM, Sir Michael Somare on politics in his homeland

Updated June 29, 2011 17:04:36

Well as we heard yesterday the family of Sir Michael Somare has decided to force political retirement on the man known as the father of Papua New Guinea.

The decision comes as Sir Michael remains in the intensive care unit of the Singapore Hospital he checked into in April for heart surgery.

Speaking in Port Moresby Sir Michael's Son Arthur made it clear that with his father incapacitated and unable to communicate, they were left with little choice.

Presenter: Campbell Cooney
Speakers: Arthur Somare; PNG PM Sir Michael Somare; Sir Rabbie Nanaliu, former PNG Prime Minister; Peter Donigi, PNG Constitutional lawyer; Radio Australia reporters, Caroline Tiriman, Pius Bonjui and Firmin Nanol
