He may have been betrayed by his coalition members, but he is not giving up just yet.
Leader of opposition, Belden Namah, says he will fight to ensure a vibrant democracy prevails in Papua New Guinea.
Mr Namah says he holds no grudge against his Opposition MP’s that have defected.
He says it is cheap and dirty politics waged by the Government to cripple the Opposition.
The mass exodus of Opposition members to the Government is not a surprise to the leader of the pack, Belden Namah.
Even if he is the last man standing in Opposition, Mr Namah says he will be resilient in keeping the government under scrutiny.
The Opposition camp has dwindled from ten at the start of the year to just two, who are Belden Namah and Rabaul open MP, Dr Allan Marat.
Mr Namah says his members have defected for obvious reasons. They were not able to access their funds to develop their electorates.
He respects their choice and criticised the Government of playing dirty politics. The Opposition’s budget this year of K4.5 million is not enough to run the Opposition.
Mr Namah says he will push for a constitutional amendment when parliament resumes to ensure the Opposition is respected as an integral part of democracy.
