Tuvalu PM calls media reports blatant lies

The prime minister said his post was not under threat as reported in the media.

The Prime Minister's office said the session was put back as a misunderstanding meant the smooth running of parliament could not be guaranteed.

In a statement, Mr Sopoaga dismissed concerns about the number of his supporters, and said the opposition only has the backing of two MPs in the 15-member parliament.

Enele Sopoaga says failure is not an option.

He says the nation may be able to purchase land in other places, such as New Zealand and Australia if necessary.

However he says that won't stop climate change and its impact on Tuvalu, whose nine coral atolls are home to about 11,000 people.
