Kalosil Hanya Popularitas

Kalosil Hanya Popularitas


One of overseas leading figures who attended International Parliamentary for West Papua (IPWP) in London was Moana Carcasses Kalosil. Who is he ?  He served as foreign minister (bertugas sebagai menteri luar negeri) under Prime Minister Edward Natapei (PM Edward) from 2003  to 2004. Following parliamentary elections, he became minister of finance on July 28, 2004 under Prime Minister Serge Vohor. He kept the post of finance minister when  Ham Lini became prime minister later in 2004.  But,  on November 14, 2005 he was sacked by Ham Lini for unclear reasons, which he led into the oposition. (Diberhentikan dari jabatannya)

From his CV we know that he does’t have any job (pengangguran) in the government except as the deputy leader of the oposition (wakil kepala oposisi).  It means that he, a member of the Vanuatu Green Party,  doesn’t represent Vanuatu government (tidak mewakili pemerintah Vanuatu).  As a young Papuan student Yohanes said,  “What he did in London was the same with two UK parliament members were doing  that is “to get popularity” (hanya mencari popularitas).
