Opposition Leader Patrick Pruaitch, when welcoming Governor Wouwou, extended their invitation to other MPs in the Government to join them and change the current government.

He said the Prime Minister's post is on the table and invited other parties to form the government.

Pruaitch also made mention of other cabinet ministers who resigned recently from the PNC party.

Court dismisses restraining orders on would-be governor Mai

Counsel representing Mai, Greg Egan moved the application this afternoon dismissing orders that were granted by Justice George Manuhu who presided as a single Supreme Court judge last week Wednesday.

The Supreme Court also removed the stay order that restrained Mai from holding any meeting with members of the Sandaun Provincial Executive Committee.

Justice Manuhu in hearing the application today found that the balance of convenience favoured Mai thus dismissing the interim orders he granted last week.
