Marape to Formally Step Down

James Marape, who was voted in as prime minister unopposed, following the country's controversial, and at times violent, national election back in 2022, is expected to step down in coming weeks in the most significant changing of the guard since Mr. O'Neil (former Prime Minister) took office 11 years ago.

Mr. Marape has been telling colleagues privately since the early midterm elections that after a grueling, nonstop stretch at deputy Prime Minister Mr. Rosso’s side going back to the 2022 campaign, he is ready to move on, according to senior administration officials, and a search for a replacement has been underway.

The officials, who discussed internal matters on condition of anonymity, would not say whether a successor has already been picked or when the decision would be announced, but indicated that it would come at some point after the PM outlined his agenda for the coming year in his State of the Union address on Feb. 7. Mr. Marape likely would stay around for a transition period to help the next chief settle into the corner office that has been his command post for many crises and legislative battles.
