In this paper, I argue that if judged specifically against measurable performance indicators, rather than the elevated expectations of cultural change advanced by some of these critics, Papua New Guinea’s electoral, party and parliamentary reforms have in fact already had a discernable positive impact upon political outcomes. Assertions to the contrary rely on outlandish interpretations of reform aims and at times ignore available evidence. And, as I will show, testable data to assess the impact of each of these reforms is readily available.
