Papua New Guinea's opposition has put the position of alternate prime minister up for offer again.
The opposition has announced it is withdrawing the motion of no confidence against prime minister Peter O'Neill which it lodged with parliament's speaker earlier this month.
It also announced that the Tari-Pori MP James Marape was withdrawing as its nomination for alternate prime minister.
The opposition MP, Kerenga Kua, says the group will still look to lodge a new motion against the prime minister.
He explained the reason behind the move to Johnny Blades.
