They say the ball is rolling and after February 5th a motion will be put forward for a vote of no confidence against Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill. Their meeting in Goroka apparently showing cracks in the Government with the Opposition claiming 8 MPs from Government ranks may join them.
The opposition say they are hearing the cry of the people, and are calling on members of Government to also have their people’s interest at heart.
This week, National Planning Minister, Richard Maru, said any attempts at a vote of no confidence would cause instability. However, today, the Opposition called on the Government to come forward with the numbers and statistics to prove that theory, saying the argument of instability was being overused.
In what will be interesting times ahead, the opposition says they will release names and the parties joining their ranks in the coming days.
