“We'll observe closely through our very alert, very diligent High Commission in Port Moresby what happens today.'
On Wednesday O'Neill was sworn in as prime minister for the third time since August, when he first became leader.
Senator Carr told journalists that PNG remains on track to hold elections starting on 23 June.
“What a source of pride it should be to all citizens of PNG that their country, poor as it is, ethnically diverse as it is, topographically challenged as it is, adheres to democratic norms,” he prated.
Meanwhile Sir Michael Somare hit out at prime minister Peter O'Neill on Thursday, saying he had made PNG "the laughing stock of the Pacific and the Commonwealth.
"You have shown no respect for tradition or protocol let alone the rule of law," Somare told O'Neill in emailed comments.
"What shame you all bring to Papua New Guinea," he said.
"Mr O'Neill and his fellow rogues have crossed the line of decency. Your actions will determine your fate in your respective electorates."
