Govt worked better under Somare: Basil


PNG’s OPPOSITION has criticised the government over it's failure to bring ministers to debate important matters in parliament over the last two weeks.

Deputy Opposition Leader Sam Basil says parliament has been adjourned unnecessarily as the government failed to bring MPs to the floor.

He says the absence of government ministers and MPs shows the government is not performing.

''We, the Opposition, believe that the government has not really performed and the government is not very serious in providing the numbers that there is quorum. The government is not serious in attending sessions," Mr Basil said.

Meanwhile, he has wished Prime Minister Sir Michael Somare a quick recovery from a heart surgery he under-went in Singapore.

He said, during Sir Michael's absence, the government has lacked discipline under acting prime minister Sam Abal.
