Papua New Guinea's ruling party says MPs who recently left to join the opposition are still welcome to return.
Around fifteen MPs have announced they were leaving Prime Minister Peter O'Neill's People's National Congress party in the last few weeks, disillusioned with the leadership.
While at least one of the MPs has since re-joined the government, the opposition has been bolstered as it prepares for a vote of no confidence against Mr O'Neill next month.
The PNC's general secretary, Dom David Kua, says there is an open door and these MPs can come back.
He spoke to Johnny Blades who asked about Mr O'Neill's statement last week that the party had a process for addressing leadership ambitions, and that 2021, a year before the next election, would be a chance for succession discussions.
