O’Neill – Dion coalition government

O’Neill confident to remain as PM

A tired looking prime minister fronted the media around 4:15pm straight after arriving from Alotau.

After four nights in the capital of Milne Bay Province reviewing its achievements of the last four years and maintaining its Alotau Accord before the Vote of No-Confidence count tomorrow, O’Neill boasted that he has the numbers.

During the head count, there were 76 MPs present and the Leader of Government Business and Finance Minister James Marape said five more MPs are not present.

With 81 MPs confirmed, Prime Minister O’Neill says his government is intact.
