Robert Semoso accused the Momis governments of self-indulgence and mismanagement.

He said he wanted to see "virtuous" people returned to parliament to instigate changes that reflected the desires of all Bougainvilleans.

Mr Semoso said, instead of the focus on a return to mining to try and establish a viable economy, Bougainville should have been embracing agriculture, because he said this was the basis of the lives of the vast majority of people in the region.
