Business as usual as O’Neill remains

It is business as usual in Papua New Guinea's capital despite the country's parliamentarians voting for Peter O’Neill to continue as Prime Minister after the vote of no-confidence was taken in Parliament.

 PMV buses and taxis are operating normal throughout the city.

The private owned vehicles are the lifeline of the city because the  majority of Port Moresby's  residents  rely on it for transportation.

Shops remained open and residents either watched  TV  or listened to the radio sets anticipating the outcome of the VONC against Prime Minister Peter O'Neill.

However, schools around the vicinity of Parliament have closed as a precaution measure.

St Peter Channel and Wardstrip Primary Schools have cancelled classes.

Gordons Secondary have sent students home at 11:30am.

NCD police boss BenjaminTuri in a media conference yesterday urged  the public to respect the rule of law. 

He said police will be out in full force to maintain law and order in the city.
