Constitutional Crisis Erupts in Papua New Guinea
A political crisis has erupted in Papua New Guinea following the Supreme Court’s 3-2 decision on December 11 that Peter O’Neill’s election as prime minister was unconstitutional. The court ordered that former prime minister Sir Michael Somare be reinstated because the office was not legally vacant when O’Neill was elected on August 2. The majority of the country’s 109-seat Parliament is loyal to O’Neill and has passed retroactive legislation recognizing him as the prime minister. In an unprecedented development, the country is now faced with two competing prime ministers, governors general, police commissioners, and cabinets. For the moment, O’Neill seems to have control of the government, but public and legislative support remains divided, and the long-term repercussions of the crisis are far from resolved.

The results highlighted a widespread perception in Indonesia that the government is not doing enough in its efforts to tackle corruption.
