Serious allegations of fraud have been leveled against the Vote of No Confidence motion filed by the Opposition against the Prime Minister and his Government.
The allegations say, signatures on the motion were forged.
Deputy Opposition Leader, Sam Basil, who sponsored the motion, says the allegations tarnish their name.
He says, the Opposition will be seeking legal advice over this allegation.
Mr. Basil says those who signed the motion, did it at their own will. He says East Sepik Governor, Grand Chief Sir Michael Somare, who seconded the motion, can at any time withdraw his support, by writing to the Committee.
Meantime, the Special Parliamentary Committee will be deliberating on the Vote of No Confidence motion by the Opposition.
Opposition Leader, Don Polye, says the motion is in order, and not defective as claimed by Finance Minister James Marape.
Polye's remarks comes after learning of an announcement by Sir Michael Somare that he is not in support of any new motion which is being filed.
Sir Michael had earlier announced that he is not in support of any new motion, because Parliament has already gone passed the 18 months Grace Period, and therefore, they cannot move any Vote of No Confidence Motion against the Prime Minister.
