PNG Opposition Leader Namah Has The Option To Amend Court Reference To Challenge Marape's Election As PM
By PNG Party
This afternoon, the Supreme Court comprising of Kandakasi DCJ, Cannings J and Sheperd J, upheld an objection to competency, by PMJM, to the section 18 Supreme Court Reference (Application) filed by Opposition leader Hon Belden Namah, which challenged the constitutionality of the appointment of Hon James Marape as the Prime Minister.
Out of the four objection points raised by PMJM, three were dismissed and only one was upheld, in which the Application failed to conform with the prescribed form under the Supreme Court Rules (Form 1) and was incorrectly entitled as a “Reference” when it ought to have been titled “Application”.
