In breaking news, Ben Micah, the leader of the People’s Progress Party (PPP), has announced that he and five fellow PPP members will be moving to the Opposition and voting for the Motion of No Confidence in Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill.
Micah said that he is not happy with how the Prime Minister has handled the recent student unrest, and the manner in which he addressed issues relating to this.
Meanwhile, the Opposition has presented a court order to the Speaker of Parliament asking for parliament to be adjourned for a further seven days, as per parliamentary procedure. This will also allow for a number of members who have been left stranded in their home provinces due to airline disruptions.
More to come.
