Alotau, Kokopo camps to arrive in POM

The declared Members of Parliament camping in Alotau and Kokopo will arrive in Port Moresby today.

In less than 24 hours, the elected MPs of the 10th Parliament will vote for the country’s new Prime Minister.      

The People’s National Congress Party-led coalition is expected to arrive on a chartered flight in the nation’s capital around midday.

On the other hand, the Kokopo camp, led by National Alliance and PANGU Party, are tight-lipped about their estimated time of arrival because of incidences of abduction and assaults on the Alliance members.

However, a declared MP confirmed with Loop PNG that they will be arriving today.

Both coalition camps will need 56 MPs on their side to form the country’s new government.

 The first sitting of the 10th Parliament will happen tomorrow in Port Moresby.
