Also on the agenda would be the debate on the reported K1.9 billion payment by National Planning.
There was also speculation that the opposition, with support from rebel MPs within government, would move for the election of a new prime minister.
People of Hela and Ji­wa­ka would also be watching closely for parliament to pass legislation for them to achieve full provincial status by next year.
The Electoral Boundaries Commission would travel to Tari this month in the first leg of a 10-day tour of the proposed provinces to gauge views on electoral boundaries.
Two weeks would be given for any objection to the proposal. 
A public inquiry would then be conducted to review the proposals.

Opposition parliamentarians were believed to be meeting in Lae and would return to Port Moresby before the sitting of parliament.
The bill to have women in parliament would also be debated in this session.
