Polye’s case to re­call PNG Par­lia­ment moves for­ward

Fiji Sun - - World News -

Port Moresby:

A court in Pa­pua New Guinea says the op­po­si­tion leader Don Polye has the right to bring to court his bid to re­call Par­lia­ment. Mr Polye was ask­ing for Par­lia­ment to re­con­vene be­fore July 25 to en­ter­tain a mo­tion of no-con­fi­dence in the Prime Min­is­ter Peter O’Neill. The Post Courier re­ported the Supreme Court ruled Mr Polye made the ap­pli­ca­tion in his ca­pac­ity as an MP and Op­po­si­tion leader and there­fore had the stand­ing to bring the case. This is after the court heard ar­gu­ments last week that Mr Polye lacked stand­ing be­cause an elec­tion pe­ti­tion was pend­ing against him. The court was ad­journed to to­day for the sub­stan­tive hear­ing to re­sume. RNZI
