Papua New Guinea's police minister Jelta Wong says the current political wrangling amongst the country's MPs is disruptive to the government's work.
Bolstered by recent defections from the government, the opposition has lodged a motion of no confidence against the prime minister, Peter O'Neill.
With a vote of no confidence still weeks away, more intensive lobbying is expected between MPs in the government and opposition groups
A member of the United Resources Party, Mr Wong said his party was committed to Mr O'Neill's coalition.
However he said the political drama of recent weeks has come at a cost.
"It's very disruptive to government business. But we have to handle these things. Hopefully there's some changes that come up. I think the ruling party has realised some of the discrepancies that they've had and they try to correct it now," said Jelta Wong.
"I really hope that we come out of this with a better understanding and better service control and delivery to our people."
