PNG's Constitutional crisis set to continue

PNG's Constitutional crisis set to continue

Updated 17 April 2012, 17:56 AEST

The Papua New Guinea parliament met briefly today amidst the political and constitutional turmoil in the country.

Among the issues is the standoff between parliament and the judiciary - with regards to a Supreme Court ruling on the controversial Judicial Conduct Law - and delaying the June national elections.

Prime Minister Peter O'Neill has also threatened to invoke parliament's oversight powers.

Our PNG Correspondent, Liam Fox, says the conflict appears to be continuing with no sign that either the government or the judiciary are backing down.
