PG Parliament



Introduction

In December 2013, the Speaker of Parliament, Theo Zurenuoc, caused quite a stir when he had carvings removed from the lintel over the portal to parliament, claiming that they were demonic and cursed. Commentators see Zurenuoc’s actions not as a sign of magical beliefs, but rather as a targeted strategy to create a new national symbolism distinct from traditional forms.
