Now 30 years into independence, Papua New Guinea often faces crises in governance. Although it has maintained a record of unbroken democratic government, the country?s political system has evolved in quite dysfunctional ways to the extent that problems of governance, economic hardship and social despair are threatening the regime?s continued legitimacy. This article analyses the attempt by Papua New Guinea to ?engineer? the development of a stable system of parties and executive government through the introduction of the Organic Law on the Integrity of Political Parties and Candidates.
