PORT MORESBY, Papua New Guinea (November 14, 1998 - Radio Australia)---Papua New Guinea's opposition parties say they are confident of removing the Skate government and forming a new government in a no-confidence motion scheduled to take place in January next year.

A group of seven opposition parties has announced that they have a combined membership of 40 members, needing another 15 to form a new government.

The opposition groups say the government of Prime Minister Skate must be changed because it has destabilized the public service by regular political appointments.

The group has also criticized the government for bad governance and bad management of the national economy.
