It’s Over – National Alliance cuts ties with PNC

The five- year partnership between Prime Minister Peter O’Neill’s Peoples National Congress and National Alliance Party is over.

NA Party parliamentary wing agreed to withdraw from the O'Neill - Dion government in a caucus meeting in Port Moresby today.

The decision followed the sacking of party leader Patrick Pruaitch as the Treasury Minister last week by Prime Minister Peter O'Neill.

The decision may have been compelling following the resignation of Transport Minister Malakai Tabar in support of his party leader on Saturday May 13, when he made the announcement at a campaign rally in his electorate.
