Namorong offers candid views on Aussie politicians
The title, good reader, will become apparent…

5:00PM - O'Neill has just been sworn in as prime minister.

4:30PM - PNG still does not have a prime minister, although there are signs of some action at government house. Mr Nape has been meeting for some time with both Peter O'Neill and Belden Namah. What can they be discussing?

1:40pm - Now acting governor-general Jeffrey Nape refuses to swear in Peter O'Neill as prime minister and leaves the room. O'Neill tells Nape's official secretary the governor-general has no choice.

12:00pm - Peter O’Neill has been re-elected prime minister of Papua New Guinea 56-0. He was unopposed. Nou Vada, Tavurvur and the ABC’s Liam Fox have all been tweeting from parliament house. Nou got his message out first, seconds ahead of Tavurvur.
