Centre Alliance will be abstaining from this motion. It's clear that there are problems on the other side of the chamber, perhaps best characterised as a mess in transition. It's hard to support a motion of no confidence in the context that, I'm sure, over the coming days, we will see a decision on who will lead the party. It's not as though we haven't seen this sort of thing happening on this side of the chamber, and they managed to steer their way through that. So I think it's a bit too early to tell. As I said, we'll reserve our rights. We'll examine what happens and revisit this question if it's necessary.
