Somare out of hospital, back home soon

SIR MICHAEL SOMARE has been discharged from hospital in Singapore and is expected back in Port Moresby later this week.

The Somare family says that Sir Michael is "OK" and will return home when he has regained his strength.

Acting prime minister Sam Abal has called for respect and prayers for Sir Michael after his heart surgery in Singapore. He was speaking after weekend rumours that Sir Michael had died.

Mr Abal says the ruling National Alliance party will not make any leadership changes. He says the party is not even considering electing an interim leader as that would be disrespectful to Sir Michael.
