The Parliamentary opposition’s claim to seek another Vote of No Confidence by using the judicial system has been slammed by Deputy Leader for People’s National Congress Party, Mao Zeming.
In a statement by the Fisheries Minister, Minister Zeming called on the opposition leader to accept the defeat and move forward.
Minister Zeming said going to court is a waste of time, and the opposition should consider working with the government for better policies in developing the nation.
Zeming described the opposition as power-hungry leaders and to stop the ongoing politics.
Being in opposition is not about bringing down the government of the day, but is about challenging the government of the day to produce the best policy for the eight million people of the nation.
“Now the opposition says after being beaten 85 votes to 21 that they want to take this to court and tie up the court’s time.
“They are saying they want to try and change the government only months from the national election.
“The parliament was forced by the Supreme Court to reconvene twice, at a cost to the public of possibly more than a million kina,” he said.
