Motion droppedFriday, 15 April 2011 03:05

The planned motion of no confidence against Prime Minister Danny Philip has been dropped.

Speaker of Parliament Sir Allan Kemakeza dropped the motion on Tuesday based on the schedule of parliament business and time factor.

The leader of the Opposition, Dr Derek Sikua, tried to move the motion on Tuesday after the budget was passed.

However, the Parliament Speaker said he had made up his mind on Monday to refuse the motion.

Opposition Leader, Dr Derek Sikua, gave notice for the motion just days after he took up the position from Steve Abana who has since joined the Government.

The Opposition's plan to oust the Prime Minister also suffered a major setback last week with the defection of six of its members.
