The continuing de-parliamentarization of PNG

Via The Australian:

Prime Minister Peter O’Neill last week proposed the changes to make sure motions of no confidence are made public three months before they come to a vote, as well as reducing the minimum annual number of parliamentary sitting days.

Three months notice for “no confidence” votes is quite an extreme proposal! I would not call it “constitutional terrorism” as the opposition leader did, but I would call it–as I have previous changes to confidence-vote procedures in Papua New Guinea–de-parliamentarization.
