Members of the coalition parties are abandoning their parties and joining the ruling party Peoples National Congress to form the next government.
One of such parties is the Enga Governor Sir Peter Ipatas’ People’s Party.
Sir Peter relinquished the party leadership to Jiwaka Governor Dr William Tongamp.
In a statement, Sir Peter indicated his intentions to contest under the PNC banner.
He said as a senior Highlands leader, I have an obligation to maintain the successful leadership in Government of Prime Minister Peter O’Neill.
