IALIBU-Pangia MP Peter O’Neill says Sir Michael Somare and his group should use parliament – and not other institutions  – to determine who governs the country.
O’Neill said no other institution could decide who should rule the country but parliament which was the only supreme authority to decide who became prime minister.
He said everyone must work together so that the crisis did not continue and erode the fabrics of the parliamentary system.
He said there were only four months left before the election and Somare should try to be the prime minister through the parliamentary process.
He said he would accept and respect whatever decision was made in parliament and called on Sir Michael to follow the parliamentary process to become prime minister.
