By Mickey Kavera – EM TV News, Port Moresby

A vote of no confidence against the Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill is likely to happen in the October or November seating of Parliament this year.

This is possible after the Supreme Court in its recent decision nullified amendments to section 145 and 142 of the Constitution, which require 11 signatures to sign a motion, and not 22 signatures.

But in order for the opposition to table a motion on the vote of no confidence it must have the numbers.

That is the big question that is being asked, whether the opposition will have the numbers to oust the seating Prime Minister.

Opposition Leader, Don Polye, although not giving any detailed plans of the opposition, indicated a possibility that a vote of no confidence looms.

Polye maintains that, Prime Minister, Peter O’Neill should step down from office as he has misled the country.

He says the opposition is ready to overthrow the Prime Minister, but the onus is on the government members if they are willing to join the opposition.

Meanwhile, there are reports that other factions are already building up their numbers for the vote of no confidence.
