Ne'e Says Sogavare Administration Still Intact
The chairman of the Government Caucus Nelson Ne'e said the administration of Prime Minister Manasseh Sogavare is still intact.
Nine cabinet ministers and three backbenchers claimed they have resigned from government at the weekend.
But none of their resignation letters reached Prime Minister Sogavare at the weekend.
The ministers resigning include recently sacked Finance Minister Gordon Darcy Lilo.
Mr Ne'e said the MPs who joined Mr Lilo in resigning may not have been aware he was sacked because of alleged misuse of tsunami recovery funds by his ministry.
He accused Mr Lilo over mismanaging state finances for personal gains.
"Lilo went around, rallied support from backbenchers and other ministers, but they're still coming back after finding out that the sacking of Gordon Darcy Lilo was due to misappropriation.
"They feel that they're not party to that kind of misappropriation." Mr Ne'e said.
He said an urgent government meeting has been called today to confirm support for Prime Minister Sogavare.
