Papua New Guinea's PM deadlock continues

Two men claim to be the legitimate prime minister of the country with no sign to resolve the political dispute.

    The political deadlock in Papua New Guinea  rumbles on to its sixth day, with two men claiming to be the legitimate Prime Minister.

    Governor-General Michael Ogio reinstated 76-year-old Michael Somare as prime minister on Monday after the court ruled that his removal from office by Peter O'Neill in a parliamentary vote in August while he was getting medical treatment outside the country was unconstitutional.

    As Al Jazeera’s Andrew Thomas reports  from Tubusereia, there is no sign yet of anything to break the deadlock.
