Prime Minister Tillman Thomas will face another battle to keep his government in power after a former Cabinet colleague filed a motion of no confidence against him on Friday.
Informed parliamentary sources said that former foreign affairs minister Karl Hood had filed the motion, the second so far this year.
Hood wants the motion to be placed on the Order Paper when the House of Representative resumes in September following the summer recess.
Hood, who resigned his cabinet post two months ago, is reported to be lobbying legislators to support the motion.
The ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC), which came to power in 2008, has been split with Prime Minister Thomas leading one faction and his former tourism minister and party general secretary Peter David leading the other faction.
In recent months, several ministers have either been fired or resigned their post and parliamentary officials said it is not yet known if the motion of no confidence will be approved by Speaker George McGuire in time for the next sitting.
