The Prime Minister Peter O'Neill seemed unmoved with the number game this morning when he and his coalition partners left the city this morning for Alotua. 

More than 70 Government MP’s consisting of supporting coalition party leaders are now on their way to Milne Bay Province, the very Province, where Government was formed almost 4 years ago.

The Government still boasts of having the numbers and Prime Minister, PETER O'NEILL just before departure morning says, they are still in Government and will display this on the floor of Parliament come the 22 of July when Parliament resumes for the VONC.

He adds that they are heading to Alotau to discuss their work program for the next 12 months.
The PM was supported by Treasurer and NA Party Leader who emphasized that they are intact and the National Alliance Party will continue to support the ruling Party because it believes in stability.
Meanwhile....Minister for Finance and Leader of Government Business, Hon. James Marape MP, has welcomed the opportunity for members of the Government caucus to take a week to review polices developed as part of the Alotau Accord in the lead-up to the return to Parliament on Friday.
Speaking following a meeting of the Government caucus in Port Moresby, Minister Marape further questioned how serious Ben Micah takes his role as an elected member given the demands he had been making while in Government.

The Minister said Government numbers are strong with Government members meeting in unity from the People’s National Congress, National Alliance, United Resources Party, People’s Progress Party, New Generation Party and a number of independents.
“I assure all our investors, business community and citizens that our Government numbers stand with PNC at 59, National Alliance at 14, URP at 8 and a number from PPP, NGP, SDP, PDM and other independents,” Minister Marape said.
“We have 91 Members of Parliament in the Government as we speak.
