There is an obvious “fatal fracture” with the ruling National Alliance Party and its coalition partners and the Opposition “is poised to strike” with a vote-of-no-confidence, Sir Mekere said yesterday.
“There is definitely a great deal of unhappiness in the National Alliance camp and it’s causing a rift between its coalition partners,” Sir Mekere said.
"Whave the OLIPPAC (Organic Law on Integrity of Political Parties and Candidates) in place which places certain restrictions but history has shown that regardless of the law, a government can be replaced by another."
