Speaker confirms receiving motion

Speaker confirms receiving motion

The Speaker of Parliament, MP Esmon Sai, confirmed to the Daily Post yesterday afternoon that a Motion of No Confidence was received by the Office of the Speaker last Friday afternoon.

However, it is yet to be determined whether or not the motion is in order.

“We are waiting for the State Law Office to advise us, if the motion received, is in order.

“At this point I cannot confirm if it is order therefore cannot comment further,” Speaker of Parliament MP Esmon Sai, told Daily Post yesterday afternoon.

According to reliable sources within parliament, if the motion turns out to be in order, it will be debated on Friday this week, two days after the closing date of the second ordinary session of parliament which is Wednesday 19th December 2018.

This is the fifth motion of no confidence against current Prime Minister Charlot Salwai.
