Malaita Premier tells people to vote wisely
Malaita Provincial Premier Ruben Moli has urged Malaitans to vote wisely come April 5. The premier made the reminder while speaking at an open forum at Auki last Friday attended by RAMSI officials.
Mr Moli told the gathering that if they are concern with the leadership of this country they must now think and vote wisely. He was contributing to an issue raised by a member of the public about the quality of leadership in Solomon Islands and corruption.
"If you think that corruption starts at the political level then April 5 is the time to make a change by electing good and honest leaders". Mr Moli pointed out that politicians are the national leaders of this country and they should show good examples to their people. He told the crowd that the ballot papers that are going to be cast on April 5 will determined the type of leader that will lead the nation for the next four years.
"You have the power to elect leaders who will represent us in the parliament so think carefully," he said.
RAMSI Special Coordinator James Batley also shared similar thoughts.
He said Solomon Islands is a democratic nation in which the people have their rights to choose and vote for who they want but they must think and vote wisely.
