THE opposition will go into camp to plan for a vote of no-confidence against the government.

Sources said despite not having the numbers, it would still make a final attempt to move a vote of no-confidence.

Members and officials would camp outside of the city and return to Port Moresby next Tuesday in time for the parliament sitting.

While senior government coalition members had brushed aside the threats, Abau MP Sir Puka Temu was still confident of a change in government.

Media reports claiming that former deputy prime minister and Kandep MP Don Polye was in talks with opposition leaders had been denied.

The Polye camp said the leader would issue a statement on the issue today.

Sir Puka, however, said the opposition had been in constant contact with government backbenchers over certain decisions.
