The Legality of PNG Parliament Sitting case adjourned to next week

 The much anticipated ruling today on the Supreme Court application by the former PNG Prime Minister Hon Peter O'Neill was adjourned to next week Monday, 30th December 2020.

The Peoples National Congress Party  leader Peter O'Neill is challenging the legality of the calling of parliament by the Speaker on 17th November 2020 and passing of the 2021 Budget.

The Chief Justice heard the Attorney General and the Speaker's application as interveners and granted leave  this morning.

The leader of government business and Finance Minister, the Clerk of Parliament and the Prime Minister also filed for interveners and will be heard on Monday.

Meanwhile, the ruling on the Opposition Leader Hon Belden Namah's application challenging the election of Prime Minister Hon James Marape in May 2019 will be handed down today, 26th November 2020, 1.30PM.

The ruling will decide whether or not the Prime Minister's election was legal or not.

Parliament is set to meet next Tuesday 1st December 2020.

Pending the outcome of these court proceedings the government surprisingly sprang the Covid-19 alarm, claiming 3 government MPs contracted the almost or near over pandemic, in a desperate attempt to cause panic and lockdown the Loloata camp.
