The Speaker of Parliament has received a motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Charlot Salwai, the second in two weeks.
Nine MPs of the Opposition bloc lodged the motion yesterday. The Opposition was absent from Parliament yesterday morning, prompting a delay to next Monday of the second ordinary sitting.
The Prime Minister, however, has asked for a further delay to the expected sitting to enable Parliamentary committees, convened to report on several topics including the Constitution, to give their findings. The motion against PM Salwai will be heard next Thursday at 4 o’clock. (Daily Digest)
This is the second attempt to derail Salwai Government after the speaker ruled the first motion was not in order.
