The President of the Pacific Games Council says Papua New Guinea has a month to prove it is fit to host the 2015 Pacific Games.

Vidya Lakhan says during a recent visit to Papua New Guinea, he was disturbed to find that the country has yet to appoint an organising committee.

He also told Clement Paligaru he was surprised that the estimated cost of hosting the Games now exceeds one billion dollars.
