PNG Parliament Adjournment by Namah illegal : Speaker

Papua New Guinea Parliament Speaker Job Pomat says the motion by  the Opposition leader Belden Namah to adjourn parliament is not right. Under the organic law and parliament standing order only a minister can adjourn parliament. Speaker Job Pomat says this means parlment is still in session. And parliament sitting will continue tomorrow (Tuesday 17 November). 

In a media conference he said after careful consideration and research he has found the motion moved by the Opposition leader Belden Namah to adjourn parliament to December is not right as it is breach of the Organic law and parliament standing orders. Pomat says under sections 2 of the Organic law on the " calling of meetings of parliament" - only a minister can move a motion to have a parliament sitting adjourned.

He says for this week sitting will commence tomorrow at 2pm.
