Papua New Guinea's opposition is calling for Parliament to sit again soon to address what it calls pressing issues of national importance.
The Parliament was on Wednesday adjourned to August amid concerns about the security situation in Port Moresby.
This came after police opened fire on hundreds of university students who planned to walk to Parliament to support the opposition's planned vote of no-confidence against Prime Minister Peter O'Neill.
The opposition leader Don Polye has slammed the police actions, calling for those behind the shootings to be imprisoned.
Meanwhile he indicated the opposition would take legal action to have parliament sit before August when a grace period protecting governments from votes of no-confidence comes into play.
"This government and the parliament are running away from addressing an issue that is within their mandate to find solutions to."
"Therefore the opposition is very vehement on this and we will address it by way of the court application where we would like to see an urgent answer or ruling given by the Supreme Court," he said.
