​National Alliance Party to decide fate today

The National Alliance (NA) Party will be holding a caucus today to decide the party’s fate in the current O’Neill–Dion coalition government.

Parliamentary leader Patrick Pruaitch confirmed this with Loop PNG yesterday.

He said a media conference will be held after the meeting to discuss the actions taken by the NA party caucus.          

This follows Prime Minister Peter O’Neill’s decision to remove the Treasury portfolio from Pruaitch last week.

O’Neill is the parliamentary leader of the major coalition partner, People’s National Congress (PNC) Party.  

The announcement by the Prime Minister last week followed comments by Pruaitch on the country’s economy and lack of election funding.

The writing is on the wall, the five-year marriage looks certain to be broken before the country goes to the polls.
