SI Opposition critical of Government's alleged delay of State Gov't process

Opposition spokesman on Provincial Government and Constituency Development, Clement Kengava has criticised the Government for failing to place more emphasis in the political process for the final adoption of a State Government system.

Mr Kengava made the accusation in a statement saying the Government had diverted peoples attention, instead of consolidating their desire for a State Government system.

He says Government's comments on rural development was a game to divert peoples attention.

Mr Kengava says that while the idea of rural development is supported by politicians and rural dwellers, it does not go far enough to guarantee the final adoption of a state government system that most people desire.

Kengava says the Sogavare-led Government was placing too much emphasis on decentralisation through rural development approach.

But Prime Minister, Manasseh Sogavare has told SIBC News shortly before he left for France last week that his Government was giving full priority to the establishment of a permanent Department which would concentrate full time efforts on a review of the constitution, towards State Government System.
