From , 3:04 pm on 15 September 2017

The remaining major party in Papua New Guinea's opposition, the National Alliance, says it's committed to sticking it out as the alternative government.

The party's president and MP for Namatanai, Walter Schnaubelt, admits the opposition was blindsided by the shock defection to government of most of the Pangu Pati this week.

He spoke to Johnny Blades who asked if National Alliance might also defect to the People's National Congress-led government.
