Papua New Guinea's ruling People's National Congress Party has sacked one of its women members, the Lae MP Loujaya Kouza.
The Post Courier says the party sacked her because she made outrageous accusations and had distasteful manners outside the conventions of decency, respect and common sense.
The move to sack Ms Kouza was announced by the PNC deputy leader Mao Zeming, who is the Fisheries and Marine Resources Minister.
He says Ms Kouza was lucky to gain enough votes to be elected in 2012, and her behaviour since the election has lost her the little local support she had in Lae.
Mr Zeming says the party will formalise her removal.
Meanwhile, the opposition released a short statement welcoming Ms Kouza.
Her sacking ended a week of political speculation when she sided with Morobe Governor Kelly Naru, leading up to the proposed motion of no-confidence in the Prime Minister, which was thrown out.
