Opposition leader urge GG for an urgent parliament meeting following the crisis within the GCC government
Leader of Opposition and other members of Parliament who have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to stay together to form a new government made the presentation today at the government house.
Opposition Leader Fred Fono says this will enable Parliament to decide whether or not the Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare still has the number to rule.
Mr Fono says the Governor General had assured the group that he will consult the Prime minister on the issue before he decided on what course of action he will take.
Mr Fono says the government ministers and back bench MPs who deserted the government wanted an urgent meeting of Parliament to sort the issue out.
Former Finance & Treasury Minister, Gordon Darcy Lilo says minister and back benchers who left the government will support any motion of no confidence against the prime minister.
But Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare had earlier stated that Parliament put him in as Prime minister and he will be removed the same way.
He says any sitting of Parliament will be decided on by the Government who will then advise the Governor General accordingly.
