Opposition Welcomes Acting Speakers' response on Vote of No Confidence against PM O'Neill

OPPOSITION WELCOMES ACTING SPEAKER’S RESPONSE ON THE MOTION OF NO-CONFIDENCE: DELAY TACTIC SHOWS PM O’NEILL LACKS SUPPORT OF MPs

The Opposition Leader Don Polye has welcomed the acting Speaker Aide Ganasi’s response on the motion of no-confidence against the Prime Minister Peter O’Neill
.
Mr Polye said in that Ganasi in a letter today (Tuesday) cited doing due diligence checks on the signatories in the motion.
He said the Prime Minister was hell-bent on sabotaging the motion.
“This is a sign of him lacking the support of his MPs from the PNC and the coalition partners in the government.
“If they were safe, would they do what they have done? If the Prime Minister had the full support of the MPs of the Parliament, would he devise such a delay tactic?
“Will they be desperate in what they are doing?” he said when commenting on the Speaker’s response to authenticate the signatures before he makes a ruling on the motion.
Polye has encouraged his Opposition MPs, those from the government who supported the motion and the people of PNG not to panic.
“There is no need to worry about. We are solid. We have to be confident that the Prime Minister and his government are very weak. They are fragmented.
“That is why they are doing this. We should be happy about this. They are desperate. They are very weak. Amidst this let’s not be emotional or get angry,” he told his team at the Opposition caucus meeting after Parliament was adjourned to 10am tomorrow.
Polye said the Prime Minister knew it very well that he lacked the support of coalition partners and his members of the ruling party.
“His (O’Neill’s) days in office are numbered. He will not survive into the elections. That is why he is doing all these to remain in power. Let us laugh about it and relax.
“How can we completely finish him off? This is the question which we all need to ask ourselves. How do we mitigate through this?” said Polye.
