Police were on full alert in the main city centres of Papua New Guinea’s capital of Port Moresby today to keep watch for any group gatherings and misbehaving from the general public, Loop PNG reports.

What used to be a heavy and busy traffic along Waigani and Gerehu was slow and only a handful of buses were on the road as Port Moresby braced itself for the parliament no-confidence vote over Prime Minister Peter O’Neill’s government.

Although some stores were open, most school students in Waigani and Gerehu have been sent home for safety reasons.
