Sir Michael can intervene in constitutional challenge
26 September 2011
THE CONSTITUTIONAL challenge to the 2 August parliamentary ‘coup’ that led to the election of prime minister Peter O'Neill is not over.
In Port Moresby this afternoon the Supreme Court determined that Sir Michael Somare can intervene in a case brought by the East Sepik provincial government seeking to overturn his exclusion from parliament.
Last week Sir Michael lost a separate court challenge to keep his seat in parliament but it seems the string of litigation has much unravelling to do yet.
