Government Confident to Overcome Vote of No Confidence

Members of parliament who are in government are not moved by the recent political events following the recall of parliament.

In a signing ceremony on Friday, Trade Minister, Richard Maru, and State Enterprise Minister, William Duma, said the government is intact.

Both ministers criticised the actions of the opposition, describing them as power hungry.

“These are actions by leaders who are in hunger of political power,” Maru said.

He added that “There is no need to question the PM; the General Election is around the corner.”

The State Enterprise Minister is confident that the government of today is intact and will still have the power during the Vote of No Confidence on Friday.

“We have the numbers and I am confident the current government will not be moved,” he said.

The government caucas is in camp as a sign of solidarity between the coalition following the motion of no confidence in parliament on Friday.

A Government spokesperson told EMTV News that their numbers have remained the same despite rumors of MPs joining the opposition.

No further details have been released but sources say the government will be in camp until parliament meets for the Vote of No Confidence.
