Former PNG AG calls for PM to resign

Papua New Guinea’s former Attorney General, Kerenga Kua, has allegedly called for Prime Minister Peter O’Neil to resign in a letter dated June 19, 2014 and shared on Facebook.

In the purported letter under the official AG letterhead, Kua said he believed the PM has lost the public’s confidence in the administration of the country and permitted self-interest to override the underlying principles of the country’s laws.

He called for the PM to resign from his position before parliament resumes next Tuesday (24 June 2014) paving way for a new PM to be elected.

The letter was copied to the Speaker of Parliament, Theo Zurenuog, and National Alliance Party Leader, Patrick Pruaitch with a handwritten note stating that it was served to O'Neil yesterday.


 
Kua was decommissioned on Tuesday as the Justice Minister and AG by PM O'Neil for opposing the government's bid to amend Section 145 of the Constitution. The move came, not surprisingly, after attempts by police to have the PM arrested for his alleged part in the Paraka scandal.
