Prime Minister Peter O’Neill has slammed  the National Alliance Party for encouraging  instability in government.

Mr. O’Neill fired the broadside against  the PNC’s former coalition partner accusing them of  illegally attempting to topple  the government.

“The attempt to destabilize a duly mandated government through threats, intimidation and fake news through social media is now taking place in this country. I urge all thinking Papua New Guineans to refrain from partaking in this illegal attempt to bring down a properly mandated government.

“It is disappointing to see the National Alliance Party vigorously encouraging the behind the scenes activities to destabilize political parties when they had enjoyed the legitimacy of the legislation over two terms in government, but NA is not prepared to allow other parties mandated through election to the same opportunity to govern.”

The PNC led coalition  today claimed it has 60 members in its camp and will remain  firm  through the vote of no confidence  period.  Over the past 24 hours, the numbers have become very fluid with MPs moving in between  Laguna and  the Crown Plaza Hotels.

This morning,  there was indication that NGI MPs  would move to Laguna after  East New Britain Governor, Nakikus Konga,  went to meet with the Laguna  group.  However, hours later  he returned to the PNC camp at the Crown.

The Prime Minister has continued to focus on positive developments under the PNC led government highlighting education and health as key priorities.

“This stability has come under threat because of the ambitions of some self-interested individuals who have not clearly outlined their policies to the Nation over the past 20 months in any way shape or form.

“This is in clear contrast to the policies that have been and continue to be delivered by the PNC-led Government Coalition.

“Since 2012 this Government has invested more in education and put more children in school than any other in the past.
