Court order sought against Somare

Warner Shand Lawyers is at the moment registering a case on behalf of Peter O'Neill to stop Sir Michael Somare from taking office.

'Double Trouble in Paradise'

It seems to be 'Double Trouble in Paradise' as Papua New Guinea has two governors-general, two prime ministers, two deputy prime ministers, 50-plus ministers, two police commissioners and two treasury secretaries.
This follows yesterday's suspension of governor-general Sir Michael Ogio in a new twist of political events.
The suspension paved way for Speaker Jeffrey Nape to automatically assume the position of acting governor-general.
He then presided over the swearing-in of Peter O'Neill, who was re-elected prime minister on Monday by 69 MPs.
After that, Nape signed instruments dismissing ministers in the Somare government who had been sworn in only hours earlier in thr morning by Sir Michael Ogio at Government House
